Law Library of Congress’s 2021 Human Rights Day

September 8, 2021

Each year, the Law Library commemorates Human Rights Day with a special program that promotes understanding and recognition of a critical social, economic, or cultural human rights issue. In previous years, we hosted a number of events highlighting various aspects of this topic - such as Contact Tracing and the Right of Privacy, Impact of the Women’s Suffrage Movement Today, Repatriating Native American Cultural Property and Remains, Human Rights in Eastern Europe, Islamic Law reform, Rights of Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons, and many more.
This year, the congress focuses on the intersection of health and human rights, with a panel that will bring together leading health and legal scholars and practitioners, who will discuss the interactions between health and human rights, and how human rights can help to strengthen public health systems across the globe and improve the response to health challenges. 

Judit Sandor will be a speaker at the conference via Zoom, from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM (ET) on Thursday, December 9th, 2021. 

Detailed program is TBA.
