Lecture: "Economic Justice: Labor Rights as Human Rights" by Joie Chowdhury

Hickey Robertson

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes the right to work under just and favorable conditions with fair pay. All too often, the most grievous violations of these rights impact low and no wage women workers.

Joie Chowdhury, National Coordinator and Research Fellow on Injured Workers' Human Rights at the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative, will explore the issue of labor rights as human rights, and why women are so frequently denied these most basic rights. Chowdhury has a lifelong background in human rights advocacy, and previously worked at the Center for Economic and Social Rights, Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute and the European Academy Representing Office in Kosovo.
