“Critical Perspectives on Human Rights”

When: 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Where: WCC 3rd floor, Human Rights Program lounge

Please join us for the latest in our occasional series to foster discussion around human rights practices and concepts. This session will feature Jeanne Charn, Senior Lecturer on Law, Harvard Law School, in conversation with Meera Shah, Clinical Advocacy Fellow, Human Rights Program, Harvard Law School. The discussion will focus on comparing and contrasting the methodologies of international human rights advocacy projects and projects involving direct client representation. In particular, we’d like to explore how these different approaches to legal work address the ethical and pedagogical questions involved in navigating power dynamics, informed consent, and connection to affected communities. Libations and finger foods, as always. Come prepared to participate. Sponsored by the Human Rights Program and the Institute for Global Law and Policy. Open to students and faculty; RSVP desirable: hrp@law.harvard.edu
