The Human Rights Institute (HRI) of Columbia Law School will co-host a groundbreaking conference on gender, sexuality and women’s rights issues that will bring together leading scholars and advocates from over 20 countries in North, South, Central America and the Caribbean.

The conference,  “Gender Justice in the Americas: A Transnational Dialogue on Sexuality, Violence, Reproduction & Human Rights,” will be held Feb. 23 – 25, 2011 at the University of  Miami School of Law, and is intended to promote a transnational exchange between advocates and academics working on sexual, reproductive and women’s rights issues in the Americas.  Other organizers include the University of Miami School of Law’s Human Rights Clinic, the Human Rights Center of the University of Diego Portales (Chile), and the Center for Reproductive Rights.

Participants will examine recent law and policy developments at the local, national, regional, and international levels in the areas of human rights, women’s rights, gender, sexuality and economic justice, as well as the legal and advocacy strategies employed by the women’s and human rights movements in the region, to deepen their effect.

Professor Suzanne Goldberg, director of the Law School’s Center for Gender and Sexuality Law, will participate on a panel entitled “Sexual Rights–Beyond Recognition,” while Paola Garcia Rey, counsel for HRI’s Inter American Human Rights Project, will address issues of transnational advocacy, gender and international human rights systems. Also participating in the conference is co-organizer Caroline Bettinger-López, formerly with Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute and Clinic, and currently associate professor of clinical legal education and director of the Human Rights Clinic at University of Miami School of Law.
