A forum and working group organized by Professor Rob Jenkins (Roosevelt House Faculty Associate, Hunter College Department of Political Science), with support from the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.

The immediate purpose of this forum and working group was to obtain feedback on the findings of recent studies in preparation for publication in the FES-NY Occasional Paper series.  The forum featured presentations by: Rob Jenkins on IBSA countries and how they are shaping the development of Human Rights norms, the international institutions through which they are realized, and their application to country-specific cases; Bertie Ramcharan (formerly of OHCHR) on how they are engaging in the Geneva-based Human Rights institutions (HRC, special procedures, and treaty bodies); and Emma Mawdsley (Newnham College, Cambridge) on how IBSA country engagement with the international aid architecture (as non-traditional donors) is affecting Human Rights issues.
