CHRGJ Announces Transitional Justice and Human Rights Writers Workshop

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) is pleased to announce its Transitional Justice and Human Rights Writers Workshop. The workshop, which will be held during several brownbag lunches throughout this semester, is designed to provide NYU law students with an informal opportunity to receive constructive feedback from their peers and from CHRGJ staff about draft papers related to transitional justice, human rights, and other international law topics. The workshop is meant to be a space to discuss existing works-in-progress, not a call for students to create new projects. There is no need to attend all the sessions, although regular participation is welcome.

Students who are interested in discussing their papers should sign up for a specific workshop date here. In the space provided for your name, please also identify your paper topic in parenthesis, for example, “Nikki Reisch (corporate accountability in int’l law).” Each session will be limited to two papers. Students are expected to send a draft of their papers to stacy.cammarano@nyu.edu one week before the workshop, for distribution to registered attendees. In addition, students who submit a paper will be expected to attend one of the other sessions to give feedback.

Available Workshops:

  • February 20, 2014, 12:30-1:45pm, Furman Hall Room 110
  • March 6, 2014, 12:30-1:45pm, Furman Hall Room 110

  • April 14, 2014, 12:30-1:45pm, Wilf Hall, 5th Fl. Conference Rm

CHRGJ invites students to attend these workshops, hear about their peers’ scholarly pursuits, provide writing and research suggestions, and engage in discussions on the issues of international law that the papers present. CHRGJ will send out more information on how to RSVP once writers have been assigned for each date. Please sign up for our mailing list at www.chrgj.org to ensure that you receive the reminder emails.
