Join us for a discussion with leading human rights thinkers on how the pandemic spotlights the need for the human rights field to innovate. Kathryn Sikkink (Harvard) will discuss her new book The Hidden Face of Rights: Toward a Politics of Responsibility, in which she argues that more emphasis needs to be on the responsibilities of all to implement rights. César Rodríguez Garavito (NYU/OpenGlobalRights) will discuss his new research, scholarship, and advocacy on forward-looking, hope-based strategies for advancing rights.  Moderated by Gulika Reddy (Columbia). 

This event is part of a virtual event series titled "COVID-19: Advancing Rights and Justice During a Pandemic." For information about other similar events and the series in general, visit tinyurl.com/COVID19JusticeSeries.
