Challenges and Opportunities for Global Human Rights

This event is part of a special Davis Humanities Institute COVID-19 Online Conversation Series

Will the failures of already weak international institutions impact the protection of Human Rights? What will be the implications of the global retreat for fragile democracies in Eastern Europe, Africa, or Latin America? How can the humanitarian needs of displaced and refugee peoples be addressed in an era of isolationism and growing dehumanization and xenophobia? Please join us for a discussion of these questions and more with Keith David Watenpaugh, Director of the UC Davis Human Rights Studies Program, Joanna Regulska, Vice Provost and Associate Chancellor of Global Affairs, and Karima Bennoune, Professor of Law and UN Special Rapporteur, Cultural Rights. Q&A will follow.
