On April 21, Georgetown Law Center hosted an interesting event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the New York Review of Books: an evening discussion on The Future of Human Rights. Justice Stephen Breyer participated, along with retired Massachusetts Chief Justice Margaret Marshall and U.S. Deputy Assistant Attorney General Pamela Karlan, as well as others. A brief summary of the discussion is here. The event was recorded for C-Span, with the first panel here and the second panel here. The wide-ranging conversation addressed economic and social rights, the universality of human rights, and comparative practices.
