Human Rights in an Illiberal Age February 8, 2017 The NYU School of Law Forum
What are the principal challenges for the human rights movement, especially but not only in the United States? Is human rights a discourse whose time has passed, or is this precisely the moment when it assumes new salience? Are existing approaches to human rights sufficient for the task, or is something very different needed?
Panelists: Philip Alston, John Norton Pomeroy Professor of Law; UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Baher Azmy, Legal Director, Center for Constitutional Rights Ejim Dike, Human rights advocate, former Executive Director of the US Human Rights Network Margaret Satterthwaite, Professor of Clinical Law; Faculty Director, Robert L. Bernstein Institute for Human Rights
