The Human Rights Program organizes more than 30 events each year. Speakers include advocates, scholars, and officials from non-governmental organizations, intergovernmental human rights bodies, or governments. These speakers may give formal presentations or lead informal discussions with small groups. The Program encourages collaboration with student groups and other research programs in designing these events.
In addition to the Speaker Series, the Human Rights Program sponsors a variety of conferences, debates, and panels. Most of the events in this series are open to the public.
