Human Rights seminar with Fulbright fellow professor Jeffrey Kahn.

The Human Rights Seminar is a forum to discuss ongoing work and recent publications for researchers working on human rights issues. The aim is to create a fora for exchanging ideas, generate discussions, and get feedback from other human rights scholars. The human rights seminars are linked to the human rights pillar at PluriCourts, but open to everyone that is interested. These seminars are a continuation of the MultiRights lunches.
