Global Human Rights Hub
Empowering Rights through Research
In our work to empower rights through research, the Global Human Rights Hub offers a variety of events and activities. Join us for working group meetings to workshop research in progress and receive feedback. Themed conferences provide networking and publication opportunities and featured speakers bring Hub faculty, post-doctoral scholars and graduate students together to engage in intellectual dialogue. If you are interested in presenting your work, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Human Rights on the Edge
Stemming from our 2019 Visioning event, "Human Rights on the Edge" is a two-part conference series. Part-one, "Progress and Preparation" will bring together all three ASU Hub working groups (gender, migration and international law). Part-two, "The Future of International Human Rights Law & Practice," supported by the National Science Foundation, will serve as an opportunity for ASU community members who participated in the first workshop as well as graduate students, junior and senior faculty who are working on topics related to the future of international human rights law from other institutions to present draft work.
International Studies Association Conference Presentation to Feature GHR Hub Faculty
The 2021 International Studies Association Conference, "The Future of International Human Rights Law: Refugees, Health & the ICC" will feature four GHR Hub faculty, including: Heather Smith-Cannoy, Tricia Redeker-Hepner, Malay Firoz, and Audrey Comstock to rethink the past, present, and future of international human rights law amidst the resurgence of populist governments in both the global north and south.
