Are all humans afforded universal human rights, and on what basis are these rights realized? Presidential Professor, Dr. Andrew Buchwalter will address this question and present a novelintercultural approach to the question of why some human rights are universal. In his presentation, he will contrast the intercultural approach with previous approaches, which emphasize human nature and political state rights. The intercultural approach argues universal human rights from intercultural interactions and histories of the world’s peoples. Come and enjoy the presentation and discussion about the validity of universal human rights. A reception will follow the lecture.
There will be a Student Panel hosted by the Interfaith Center at 5:00 p.m. in the
