Call for Proposals: University of Dayton Human Rights Center's The Social Practice of Human Rights Conference
The Human Rights Center at the University of Dayton will convene the 2021 Social Practice of Human Rights Conference in December 2021 and will focus on the challenges and opportunities the pandemic has created for human rights advocacy. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2021.
The Call for Proposals states that submissions are welcome on the following:
- New or refined tools, methods, and strategies for advocacy emerging during the pandemic, including in transnational advocacy and international institutions;
- Confronting historical legacies of abuse in moments of flux and transition, including reshaping public spaces (eg. memorials, schools) to advance justice;
- New forms of public-private partnerships in human rights and corporate-sector advocacy, including by labor and employee movements; and
- The emergence of intersectional advocacy groups, movements, and networks building relationships across borders and connecting issue areas that leverage this particular political moment.
I attended this conference in 2015 and loved the mix of scholars and practitioners, lawyers and non-lawyers, all in dialogue with one another.
