Part of the 2014–2015 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by John Tasioulas RI '15


During his fellowship, John Tasioulas aims to complete a monograph titled “Human Rights: From Morality to Law,” which is a philosophical inquiry into the nature and basis of human rights and the major challenges confronting them, including the charges that they are merely ethnocentric or utopian. It will conclude by addressing how human rights norms are best realized through international law.
