“The Cash Nexus: Advocacy at the Intersection of Development, Human Rights, and the Global Economy”
February 22, 2011
12:00- 1:00 pm
Please join us for a brown bag talk featuring Peter Rosenblum, the Lieff, Cabraser, Heimann & Bernstein Clinical Professor in Human Rights Law at Columbia Law School and the Co-Director of its Human Rights Institute.
Prior to joining Columbia, Rosenblum was the Clinical Director of the Human Rights Program at Harvard University. His research has taken him around the world, but his main focus remains Africa, where he has spent much of his career exposing corruption and promoting financial transparency in natural resource contracts. He has served as a human rights officer with the Geneva-based precursor to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, a program director of the International Human Rights Law Group, and a researcher for Human Rights Watch and the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights.
This event is co-sponsored by the Harvard Law & International Development Society.
