Human Rights in Conflict: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

A five-week institute for twenty-five college and university teachers on human rights.

This five-week instititue will bring together 25 college and university teachers from various academic disciplines to read about, to listen to invited specialists discuss, and to engage with them and one another what has become the lingua franca of international political ethics: human rights. The director has crafted a program of study that links philosophical, historical, legal, cultural, and political aspects of human rights--particularly in terms of their paradoxical relationship to power. The institute is designed to create an intellectual community that enhances the professional careers of participants and, by illuminating a common concern of citizens, benefit us all.
