12:30pm - 1:30pm    |    The Puck Building , The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue, 2nd Fl., 295 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012-9604

Featuring Philip Alston, CHRGJ Faculty Director & Co-Chair, UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights.

The widely endorsed proposal for a universal social protection floor is a perfect example of the deep relevance of human rights to the debate over poverty eradication.  Challenges include overcoming the ambivalence of key international actors, including especially the World Bank; the lack of sufficient legal recognition of social protection as a human right; and misconceptions over the affordability of such rights.

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.
