Description

This year’s Bernstein Symposium will address the question of whether we are on the cusp of a paradigm shift. Is the age of human rights going to give way to new norms and institutions? What is the place of individual rights claims in the face of global, systemic crises? What norms will guide international institutions, if not human rights? Are our existing obligations, institutions and forms of advocacy now obstacles to the sorts of responses we need? If a new order is emerging, what role can or should the United States play? 

Panelists:

Agnès Callamard, Secretary General of Amnesty International, Former UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Execution

Alex de Waal, Research Professor and Executive Director, World Peace Foundation, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University

Aziz Rana '06, Richard and Lois Cole Professor of Law, Cornell Law School.
