Review Event: What's Wrong With Human Rights?


On Friday 9 October 2009 at 4 pm, the UCL Jurisprudence Review will host an international panel of pre-eminent scholars and lawyers to explore the limits of human rights law.
Does human rights express ideology of western liberalism? Does it view social injustice too narrowly? Whom does it benefit most and who is left out? Has the human rights movement reached its potential? A panel of distinguished speakers will address these issues to an audience of academics, students, lawyers and journalists at the University College London Gustave Tuck Theatre.


Confirmed speakers include:
  • Kimberle Crenshaw, professor at Columbia Law School and a prominent figure in critical legal studies;
  • David Kennedy, professor at Harvard Law School known for his criticism of international law;
  • Philippe Sands QC, professor at UCL Faculty of Laws and author of the internationally renowned Torture Team; and
  • William Twining, emeritus professor at UCL Faculty of Laws and a leading figure in British legal education.
UCL Jurisprudence Review is an annual collection of essays in jurisprudence published by the University College London Faculty of Laws. The panel celebrates the launch of the fifteenth edition of the Review, which has been published since 1994.
"UCL could hardly have chosen a more timely topic for the launch of their exciting Review", said Professor Kennedy. "Over the last decade, human rights have increasingly become part of our governance, at home and internationally. An excellent opportunity to reflect on the benefits, as well as the costs, of that development".
