Will the failures of already weak international institutions impact the protection of Human Rights? What will be the implications of the global retreat for fragile democracies in Eastern Europe, Africa, or Latin America? How can the humanitarian needs of displaced and refugee peoples be addressed in an era of isolationism and growing dehumanization and xenophobia? Please join us for a discussion of these questions and more with Keith David Watenpaugh, Director of the UC Davis Human Rights Studies Program, Joanna Regulska, Vice Provost and Associate Chancellor of Global Affairs and Professor of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, and Karima Bennoune, Professor of Law and UN Special Rapporteur, Cultural Rights. Q&A will follow.

This event is part of a special Davis Humanities Institute COVID-19 online Conversation series, and is co-sponsored by the UC Davis Human Rights Studies Program, UC Davis Global Affairs, International House Davis, the UC Davis Office of Public Scholarship and Engagement, and UC Davis School of Law.
