Global Hauser Fellow Marlon Weichert to Speak at Brown University on Impacts of Brazil’s National Truth Commission on Human Rights Activism

On Tuesday April 7, the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University will host Global Hauser Fellow, Marlon Weichert, for a discussion of Brazil’s National Truth Commission and its impacts on human rights activism. Weichert, who has almost 20 years of experience as a federal prosecutor in Brazil, is currently at NYU to conduct research on the role that institutional reform, within a transitional justice framework, can play in societies that – even after re-democratization – have failed to curb state violence.
