Is the fight against terrorism a comprehensive response or one that undermines human rights? Is human rights mere political and business rhetoric?

These are just some of the questions 2006 Sydney Peace Prize recipient Irene Khan raised at the World Economic Forum at Davos (24 – 28 Jan 2007).

Ms Khan met with political and business leaders, and NGO representatives. On her agenda representing Amnesty International were business and human rights, the focus on human rights values and agenda on the Middle East.
