Description

Don't miss out on our 14th annual Ikeda Forum on Friday evening, November 30th! This year's theme is, How Do We Practice Human Rights? A dialogue on dignity and justice in daily life.

In a recent statement, Daisaku Ikeda has emphasized that "it has never been more important to create and solidify a movement for human rights education that will foster the social conditions in which people treasure human diversity and dignity within the contexts of their daily lives." In so doing, "ever more individuals can recognize and take personal responsibility for the construction of a culture of human rights."

Inspired in part by this statement, as well as by the work and scholarship of this year's three panelists, the 2018 forum will examine human rights and human rights culture, including its complexities and challenges.

Panelists include:

  • Elora Chowdhury, Professor & Chair, Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies; Director, Human Rights Minor; UMASS Boston
  • Catia Confortini, Associate Professor, Co-Director, Peace & Justice Studies Program; Affiliated Political Scientist, Department of Political Science; Wellesley College
  • Jason Goulah, Associate Professor of Bilingual-Bicultural Education; Director, Institute for Daisaku Ikeda Studies in Education; Depaul University

The panel discussion will be followed by a youth-led dialogue amongst participants.

Please join us on November 30th for this timely discussion on how we can foster a culture of human rights in our daily lives.

This event is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you here!
