Featuring Marlon Weichert, CHRGJ Hauser Global Scholar, prosecutor with the Federal Public Ministry of Brazil (Ministério Público Federal).

Brazil’s 1988 constitution enshrines a unique mandate for the Brazilian Public Prosecution Service—to defend human rights and the rule of law—in addition to fulfilling its criminal prosecution duties. As a federal prosecutor for nearly 20 years, Marlon Weichert specialized in human rights litigation and advocacy. Weichert will discuss his firsthand experience with the Federal Prosecution Service, developing transitional justice strategies in response to Brazil’s repressive dictatorship. He will explain recent initiatives, including innovations and challenges, in the fields of justice, truth, memory and reparations.

The Conflict, Security, and Development Series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law School, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Continuing and Professional Studies, NYU’s Global Institute for Public Health, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner.

Each Tuesday, this series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches and highlight recent analytical and practical innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in the context of conflict and post-conflict situations.
