“The Future of Human Rights: Now More Than Ever”
Alison Brysk, UCSB Mellichamp Professor of Global Governance and Human Rights
Human rights have fallen on hard times-yet they are needed now more than ever. People all over the world—from Amazonian villages to Iranian prisons—use human rights to gain recognition, campaign for justice, and save lives. In challenging times, we will explore how to reconstruct human rights for the 21st century.
