GSL Research Associate Presents at the 2019 Bergen Exchanges on Law and Social Transformation

August 19, 2019


GSL Research Associate Adèle Cassola presented on the concept of the “human rights city” during a panel at the University of Bergen, Norway that kicked off the 2019 Bergen Exchanges on Law and Social Transformation. The session tackled the question of how human rights can be understood and implemented in the context of urban governance. Adèle’s presentation set the stage for the roundtable by exploring theoretical and practical issues associated with the implementation of human rights at the local level. The session was part of a weeklong exchange during which scholars from around the globe explored how law can be used as an instrument of social change.
