Global Perspective Series: Human Rights at Home

In the fall of 2020, CGE hosted a Global Perspective Series on “Human Rights at Home." Although the Bill of Rights was one of the world’s first human rights declarations, over time the U.S. government has broadly disengaged from the international human rights system.

This series brought together experts to discuss why the U.S. has taken a divergent route on human rights and how embracing the international human rights system could make a critical impact in addressing system racism and differential access to education and health care.
