Partnership with OpenGlobalRights

Human rights actors can strengthen their legitimacy, strategies, and constituencies through critical debate and unique public opinion data. OpenGlobalRights works with contributors to create user-friendly multilingual articles to launch discussions on a range of relevant human rights themes.

The partnership with OGR is centered around the Social Practice of Human Rights Conference featuring a series of SPHR articles.

SPHR19 will convene October 1-4, 2019 to address the high-risk threats that present themselves with unprecedented urgency and address topics relating to eco-economic, technological, and social transformations and movements. SPHR19 will include plenaries, keynote addresses, a mix of research sessions and a forward thinking workshop led by JustLabs and OpenGlobalRights
