Upcoming Events

Theory and Practice: Transnational Conversations on Gender and Sexuality—Colonialism, Sex, Disease

Wednesday, Dec 2, 2020 9:30 – 10:30 am Zoom Event Learn More and Register

This session will explore the complex ways in which understandings of health, disease, and contagion have been inextricable from anxieties around race and sex, and the sex of the “other,” in particular. By doing so, we will contextualize the current pandemic and trace its pre-history to earlier moments of cultural anxiety around race, sex, disease, and contagion.

UNESCO “Human Rights Go Local” Academy & Conference

Monday, Feb 1 – 9, 2021 9 am – 5 pm Zoom Event Learn More

At the virtual “Human Rights Go Local: What Works” Academy and Conference, human rights experts and practitioners, academia, policy makers, public administrators, civil society, as well as international and regional organizations will gather in order to exchange knowledge and establish co-operations in a global network of stakeholders. The aim of the Academy is to collect proven methods for research on human rights at local and regional levels and to formulate guidance for local governments on how their policies can be supported by evidence based on human rights research. This will facilitate the implementation of human rights by directly providing local level politicians and authorities with the findings and proposals elaborated by the participants.
