Race, Religion, and Reparative Justice: Black Lives Matter and International Human Rights

Presented by Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion

Alex Hsu, a postdoctoral research associate with the Ansari Institute, talks with Diane Desierto, associate professor of human rights law and global affairs at the Keough School of Global Affairs, about the call for racial justice and how it intersects with international human rights law. Their conversation follows the recent announcement of a UN investigation into systemic racism and discrimination against people of African descent.

Together, they explore the importance of religious discourse in human rights discussions and stress the need for greater understanding and empathy.

Their discussion is part of the Ansari Institute’s online conversation series Engaged: Religion and the Common Good.
