Peter Speelman

Peter Speelman will be working on a number of papers this semester touching on issues of human rights and how these rights manifest themselves (or fail to) within global institutions and legal frameworks.  He will look specifically at the institutionalization of human rights within the World Bank through the lens of the Bank’s resettlement policies and practices in financing large hydroelectric projects.  He will also be looking at the incorporation of human rights through the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals monitoring and review mechanisms.  Another one of his papers will investigate a Draft Law on Reconciliation in Economic and Financial Areas in Tunisia, which could affect the work of Tunisia’s Truth and Dignity commission.  Finally, he will finalize a  paper on issues of humanitarian access in armed conflict, potentially as they relate to the rights of IDPs under the recent Kampala Convention.
