What are the philosophical and historical approaches to contemporary justice issues? How do laws, treaties, and norms work in practice to protect rights? Through lectures and discussions with affiliated faculty, researchers, and advocates associated with the University of Chicago’s Pozen Family Center for Human Rights, participants will explore these questions through the lens of particular issues in the field. Visits to advocacy organizations, cultural events, and courts and other government institutions will reveal how these questions play out beyond the classroom, and give participants behind-the-scenes access to the rich resources available in Chicago to address human rights on a local, national, and global scale.
