On September 9, 2015, 5:00pm – 7:00pm, CHRGJ will present its latest photo exhibit: “Images of Inequality: seeing disparity through a human rights lens”. The exhibit shows the work of photographers from around the world, who use their oeuvre to reflect on the ways in which people experience, perceive and portray inequality.
The photo project is part of the CHRGJ’s new initiative on inequality, the global economy and human rights. The initiative seeks to critically examine the role of international human rights law, scholarship, and advocacy in regulating the global economy and countering its tendency to exacerbate inequalities of various types—from economic gaps to social and political divides. Disparities frequently fall along lines of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, religion, or physical ability, creating mutually reinforcing spirals of inequality.
For the occasion, CHRGJ will hold an open house offering an opportunity to visitors to meet the Center’s staff and faculty and to learn about upcoming events and projects in an informal setting with cheese and wine.
