Human Rights in a Globalizing Era?
August 4-6, 2005
University of Windsor
Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Organized by the Centre for Studies in Social Justice, University of Windsor.
The worldwide expansion of new social and economic relations, new patterns of migration, and the spread of North American consumer culture have had radically destabilizing effects on the life-conditions of peoples and populations around the world. The conference will consider the diverse ways in which issues of democracy, practices of citizenship, and social security articulate with human rights in this globalizing era. It will bring together internationally known scholars, researchers, and activists whose work addresses the foundations, history, politics, or limitations of human rights and whose participation will assist in redressing the intractable dilemmas associated with the processes of globalization.
Confirmed speakers include:
Dr. Alison Brysk, Political Science Department, University of California, Irvine, USA.
Dr. Tony Evans, Department of Politics, Southampton University, UK.
Dr. Vandana Shiva, Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology, INDIA.
