BIO: In his new book, Civilizing Globalization, Professor Kinley analyses how human rights intersect with the trade, aid and commercial dimensions of global economic relations, taking the view that, while the global economy is a vitally important civilizing instrument, it itself requires civilizing according to human rights standards. Join us for a discussion as Professor Kinley presents his research and his proposals for minimizing and managing the socially debilitating effects of market failures and financial meltdowns.
