The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (New York University School of Law) is pleased to announce a major global conference on International Human Rights Fact-Finding in the Twenty-First Century, to be held in New York on November 1-2, 2013.
This conference will bring together leading practitioners and scholars to facilitate a critical and constructive discussion about the key challenges and opportunities in international fact-finding, a subject that is fundamental to human rights, but has thus far received far too little scholarly attention or critical analysis. Panels will include consideration of fact-finding in the context of: politics and imperialism; victims and witnesses; enforcement mechanisms and litigation; interdisciplinary techniques and methodologies; social media and crowd sourcing; and international guidelines.
For information on registering to attend the conference (space is limited), or to propose a paper for presentation at the conference, please see here
