This event is free and open to the public. Guests will be asked to show ID upon entering the building.

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. This year’s spring forum will take place over the course of two days (April 23 and May 11) and will feature our visiting scholars as well as a guest scholar visiting at NYU Steinhardt. 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 or paper drafts will be available to those who RSVP.
