Every year, CHRGJ hosts an impressive group of visiting scholars engaged in research that shapes in fundamental ways how we think about and advocate for human rights and global justice. They are an integral part of the Center, and our biannual forums are opportunities for the broader community to learn about and engage more deeply with their work. Our two-day spring forum will feature scholars discussing projects in various stages. Academics, practitioners, students, stakeholders, and members of the broader community are welcome to attend. Presentations will be followed by comments from discussants and audience members. Précis will be available to those who RSVP.

Below is the schedule for the second day of the forum. For the Monday, April 3 schedule, click here.
