FREE: Keynote and plenary sessions

OpenGlobalRights has teamed up with the University of Dayton Human Rights Center to feature its biennial conference, the Social Practice of Human Rights (SPHR), which serves as a platform to bridge the divide between scholars and practitioners and enable critical reflection on human rights research on and for advocacy.

In October 2019, SPHR will convene to address high-risk threats that present themselves with unprecedented urgency. It will be our task to reinvigorate collaborative efforts with hope and vigor, building sustainable movements and disruptive methods even when it means, to quote Pope Francis, “going against the grain.”

Featured speakers at the conference will include Opal Tometi, Anand Giridharadas, Zeynep Tufecki.

Each day includes a plenary, a keynote address, a mix of research sessions, and a forward-thinking workshop led by JustLabs and OpenGlobalRights.
