Can the U.N. End Racism? International Responses to Racial Discrimination
Please join us for a talk by Gay McDougall, Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham University. McDougall was elected in 2015 to serve a second term as a member of the UN Committee on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination. She served as the first UN independent expert on minority issues and for 14 years she was executive director of Global Rights, which worked with human rights advocates in 10 countries around the world to develop their strategies for justice.
