MrGlobalization.Com is very pleased to announce the following conference:

HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE GLOBAL ECONOMY
Wednesday and Thursday, November 9-10, 2011.  John Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street, NYC.

The Center for Public Scholarship presents the 25th conference from the Social Research journal at The New School. Join us as experts and scholars discuss human rights as a mediating language for discussions about social justice and the global economy. How does a wealthy nation determine what they can do to alleviate global poverty? What are the ethical obligations and how can such assistance be mutually beneficial? What are the human rights responsibilities and obligations of international financial institutions and corporations? Where are the opportunities in economic policies and institutions to strengthen human rights policies around the world and improve social justice?
