Human Rights Program 20th Anniversary Symposium
Human Rights Program 20th Anniversary Symposium: Mobilizing Knowledge to Advance Human Rights
The Human Rights Program celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year! To mark the occasion we are hosting the “Human Rights Program 20th Anniversary Symposium: Mobilizing Knowledge to Advance Human Rights” on November 18-19, 2021 in Cowles Auditorium, Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Portions of the event will also broadcast via Zoom.

The two-day event features a keynote address on the role of universities in advancing human rights by a UN OHCHR representative, a showcase of UMN faculty-led engaged scholarship, a film screening of Until We Find Them, conversations with Mexico-based journalists and researchers working to address disappearances in Latin America, presentations by a student team researching human rights defenders, and the launch of Program Director Barbara Frey's newest book, Disappearances in the Post-Transition Era in Latin America. Join us as we highlight the many affiliated faculty, students, and practitioners engaging in human rights research, teaching, and engagement - the three pillars of the Program’s work. We have much to celebrate!
