Exploring International Human Rights on the Local and Global Stage: Activism, Experiences, and Limitations
International Studies at UND invites you to attend events that explore pressing human rights issues. In a series of events, we will discuss why human rights is one of the most celebrated and controversial ideas in our world today. Why do some people believe that human rights is the best way to bring about positive change in the world while others reject it as a new form of cultural imperialism? Co-sponsors are the Women and Gender Studies Program, the History Department, and Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures.
