Lecture Series

​Every academic year, Trinity’s Human Rights Program hosts a series of  contentspeakers. The lectures bring to campus leading human rights academics and advocates, who often interact with students in small-group.  Speakers have included former international judges and foreign leaders; prominent human rights scholars; directors of major human rights organizations; current and former government officials; leading defense attorneys; as well as human rights victims and local contentactivists.  Topics cover the spectrum of human rights issues, including the war on terror, ethics, health and science, women’s rights, international law, children’s rights, the environment, and truth commissions.
