Building Brics: Human Rights in a Multipolar World

Thursday, February 14, 2013
3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
UCLA School of Law
Room 1430
Los Angeles, CA 90019

UCLA's JILFA hosts an annual symposium addressing pressing issues in international law. This year, the focus is the so-called BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. The BRICS are contributing to significant changes in the world's economic alignment, but each country deals with several serious human rights issues. JILFA has invited leading academics and practitioners to speak about racial discrimination in Brazil, freedom of speech and expression in Russia, violence against women in India, minority rights in China, and LGBT rights in South Africa.
