The concept of utopia has equally been idealised as it has been condemned across creative works through the ages. Join lawyer Sangeetha Yogendran as she shares how her legal profession and experiences in humanitarian work have shaped her views on equality and human rights, and discusses the ideal of a human utopia.

This session is inspired by the subjects of coexistence and equality posed by the APB Foundation Signature Art Prize 2018 finalist artwork, The Infinite Episode (2016) by Jitish Kallat.

Sangeetha Yogendran has worked in a range of international law fields, with a focus on human rights, humanitarian law and rule of law. She has worked in the occupied Palestinian territories on violations of international humanitarian law, in Cambodia with the Khmer Rouge Tribunal’s Victims Unit, the International Criminal Court, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Singapore, Interpol and with refugees in Malaysia with the UNHCR. Her recent research roles with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and with Nanyang Technological University focused on rule of law and humanitarian response and disaster relief. She has also worked in humanitarian support with Save the Children International, and joined the response teams for Typhoon Haiyan and the Nepal earthquake. Sangeetha is a qualified Advocate & Solicitor in Singapore, and holds an LL.M. in Public International Law and an LL.B (Honours), and is currently pursuing a Masters in conflict resolution and peacebuilding in Cambodia.
