RBW in human rights and inequality roundtable

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Mon, Dec 15, 2014


On December 17, 2014, RBW Project Director Aldo Caliari will be in New York to attend the Roundtable “Inequalities, Extreme Poverty, and Human Rights.” The meeting, convened by the UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights and the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice of New York University,  will bring together a group of scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines to conceptualize and articulate how inequalities implicate multiple human rights simultaneously, assess how well-equipped the current human rights legal regime is to address such cross-cutting phenomena, which do not fit neatly on either side of the historical human rights dichotomy, and broaden accountability to powerful actors beyond the territorial State.
