RightsWatch | Human Rights in the Age of Trump: IMMIGRATION

What is our RightsWatch series?
What do the rights to due process, health care, a clean environment, education, and living wage have in common? Over the next four years, we are likely to witness dramatic changes in how the US government sees and treats fundamental rights. RightsWatch seeks to bring Duke scholars and activists in conversation about the rights debates that will shape the future. These panels are designed to comment on a fast-moving political scene while at the same time engaging in civil - and deeply civic - conversation.
Our February 13th panel on immigration featured Imam Abdullah Antepli (Duke Divinity School), Professor Gunther Peck (Duke University), and Ivan Almonte (Alerta Migratoria NC), moderated by Professor William Chafe (Duke University).
The Duke Human Rights Center @ the Franklin Humanities Institute brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, staff and students to promote new understandings about global human rights issues. We put special emphasis on issues of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, income inequality, the environment and artistic responses in our teaching, programming and outreach.
