The Annual Human Rights @Duke Lecture: Human Rights in the Neoliberal Maelstrom

Thursday, September 6
5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Jameson Gallery, 115 Friedl, Duke East Campus

On Thursday, September 6, Samuel Moyn will present the Annual Human Rights @Duke Lecture with a talk entitled, “Human Rights in the Neoliberal Maelstrom.” 

“The age of human rights has been kindest to the rich. Even as state violations of political rights garnered unprecedented attention due to human rights campaigns, a commitment to material equality disappeared. In its place, market fundamentalism has emerged as the dominant force in national and global economies.” In his provocative new book, Not Enough: Human Rights in an Unequal World, Samuel Moyn analyzes how and why we chose to make human rights our highest ideals while simultaneously neglecting the demands of a broader social and economic justice.

On Thursday, September 6 at 12 PM the Duke Human Rights Center at FHI will host a lunch for students with Professor Moyn. Please email Emily Stewart at emily.stewart@duke.edu if you would like to attend.

This event is co-sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, The Duke Human Rights Center at FHI, the History Department, The Center for International and Comparative Law, the Sanford School of Public Policy, the Rubenstein Library, and International and Comparative Studies
