Human Rights: Adapting to the Challenges of our Times
Please join us for a student-led symposium on the topic of adapting to the challenges of our times. The symposium will include panels that explore human rights and global challenges; economic, social, and cultural rights, from the perspective of narratives and implementation; the rights and dignity of refugees and migrants and the nationalist backlash; the treatment of minorities across the globe; and shared action across human rights issues, with a focus on solidarities and coalitions. More information, including speakers, on the symposium website.
The Symposium is organized with the support of the Carr Center for Human Rights, the Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights, the Department for African and African American Studies, the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School, HKS Office for Student Diversity and Inclusion, the Human Rights Professional Interest Council and the Muslim Caucus (student organizations at Harvard Kennedy School), the Kennedy School Student Government, and the South Asia Institute.
