Human Rights Seminar Series (HRS)

Each academic year, the Center for International Human Rights (CIHR) invites five to six renowned scholars and/or practitioners to address cutting-edge human rights topics including humanitarian law, economic rights, women’s rights, and immigration in the Human Rights Seminar Series. The Series is co-sponsored by the CIHR at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the City University of New York (CUNY) Ph.D./M.A. Program in Political Science. The seminars usually take place at the CUNY Graduate Center located at 365 Fifth Avenue, from 6:00-8:00pm, unless otherwise noted. Below are the past Human Rights Seminar series, including the speakers, topics, dates, locations and supporting material.
