Seminar leader: Dr. Jonathan Fanton

The faculty seminar on Human Rights and International Justice provided a venue for Hunter’s faculty to present work under way, or in progress.  Among the topics of discussion were: how international standards and norms like the Responsibility to Protect are developed; the role of Regional Courts and Commissions; the relationship of the ICC and adhoc and hybrid tribunals to national justice systems; the role of civil society organizations in advancing human rights (including case studies).   Seminar members had the opportunity to meet with visitors involved in human rights and international justice, such as Richard Dicker, Director of International Justice at Human Rights Watch and Juan Mendez, former Director for the International Center for Transitional Justice.
