Join us as experts and scholars explore human rights as a mediating language for discussions of social justice and the global economy. How do democracy, social justice, and international human rights law constrain international trade and intellectual property? What responsibilities do wealthy nations have to end global poverty? What are the ethical obligations and claims for collective international action? What are the human rights dimensions of climate change and its consequences for people’s lives and livelihoods? Can international organizations and corporations ignore human rights? In what ways can economic policies and institutions be used to strengthen human rights policies around the world and advance social justice?
