2020 Human Rights Symposium
The Harvard Law School Human Rights Program is exploring in a comparative and cross-disciplinary manner the concept of indirect discrimination on the basis of religion through a remote workshop in April 2020, hosted in cooperation with the Harvard Law School Project on Disability, the Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute, and the Harvard Human Rights Journal. The Journal’s website will be publishing a series of short essays reflecting views of the participants leading up to the workshop to spark thoughtful discussion. All four of those essays, as well as Professor Neuman’s introduction to the topics, are linked below.
