Sponsored by: the Human Rights Program and the Institute for Global Law and Policy

This event was part of a series to foster discussion around human rights practices and concepts.

Featuring Jeanne Charn, Senior Lecturer on Law, Harvard Law School, in conversation with Meera Shah, Clinical Advocacy Fellow, Human Rights Program, Harvard Law School.

The discussion focused on comparing and contrasting the methodologies of international human rights advocacy projects and projects involving direct client representation.  In particular, we explored how these different approaches to legal work address the ethical and pedagogical questions involved in navigating power dynamics, informed consent, and connection to affected communities.
