The 2017 Social Practice of Human Rights Conference
How are racism, xenophobia and other forms of extremism challenging human rights advocacy?
OpenGlobalRights is teaming up with the University of Dayton Human Rights Center to feature its biennial conference, The Social Practice of Human Rights 2017 (#SPHR17).
The University for the comon good: The University of Dayton — a Catholic, Marianist research university — has long been a center of programming, dialogue and education on social justice and human rights. Founded in 2013, the Human Rights Center expands the University of Dayton’s mission to integrate both the theoretical and practical approaches to learning and unite with other institutions, groups and individuals working to realize the common good — locally and globally.
SPHR17 explores challenges to advocacy posed by racism, xenophobia, other forms of extremism and what Pope Francis has termed “the globalization of indifference.”
A series of articles on these topics will be published here pre- and post-conference to grow conversations. Plenary dialogues and keynote addresses will be livestreamed and accessible here on November 8-10, 2017.
