About This Event

Join the International Law Society for a guest speaker presentation. Professor Critchlow will talk about the challenge of teaching the value of "universal" human rights in a culture that has significantly different political, religious, and social traditions. How do you balance the desire to advance human rights with the need to be sensitive to and tolerant of different ways of understanding rights and responsibilities?
