Listen to and participate in a discussion about moving progressive social justice agendas within the UN’s human rights system with Dominique Day, Victor Madrigal-Borloz and Cynthia Rothschild, the Director of Oxy’s UN Program. Why is it often so difficult to address, for instance, racist policing or the rights of LGBTIQ people? How can researchers and advocates navigate institutional and “right wing” challenges? And why do some agendas advance while others meet great resistance?
