Interdisciplinary Perspectives on International Development is hosting our biannual student speaker series. The title is: "Righting Human Wrongs: the Value of Rights in International Development". We define the theme broadly, seeking a diversity of theoretical and practical perspectives on any relevant issue, event, population, or geographic area.

At the conference, each selected student will give a 15-20 minute presentation based on his or her paper, followed by a brief Q&A.  After all speakers have made their presentations, there will be a moderated panel session with all presenters and open discussion to tie together the ideas presented.  The panel session will explore links between the student's presentations and the value of taking an interdisciplinary approach to this theme.
