2018 Ikeda Forum!

You're invited to our 14th annual Ikeda Forum
Friday, November 30th, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Reception at 6:00

This year's theme is:

How Do We Practice Human Rights?
A Dialogue on Dignity and Justice in Daily Life

Please RSVP here to let us know you're coming!

The theme is inspired by Daisaku Ikeda's recent statement that "it has never been more important to create and solidify a movement for human rights education that will foster the social conditions in which people treasure human diversity and dignity within the contexts of their daily lives." In so doing, "ever more individuals can recognize and take personal responsibility for the construction of a culture of human rights."

Together with our panelists, all of whom are working in their own unique realms in the cause of human rights, we will examine human rights and human rights culture, including its complexities and challenges. This will be followed by a youth-led dialogue amongst participants. Our accomplished panelists are:

Elora Chowdhury

Catia Confortini
Associate Professor, Co-Director, Peace & Justice Studies Program; Affiliated Political Scientist, Department of Political Science; Wellesley College
