    Economic Inequality and Human Rights

    Rapoport Center Colloquium: Law and the Production of Inequality

    Our public debates are increasingly centered on the question of socio-economic inequality – its increase, its economic and political consequences, its importance to the present and its likely future. Inequality may well be at the root of many of the human rights violations in the world today. Our Fall 2018 speaker series will explore the role of law (including, perhaps, human rights law) in the production of inequality, and the role of law (including, of course, human rights law) in responding to inequality. The Colloquium presents an interdisciplinary group of scholars who focus their investigations on the ways in which various legal regimes create, reinforce, and/or ameliorate patterns of structural inequality, locally and globally.

    The Planet Texas 2050 Grand Challenge

    Texas' population could nearly double by the year 2050. In the context of extreme weather events, which will bring more floods, more droughts, and more heat, how do we prepare? How do we ensure our state’s resources can support the demands for urbanization, water, transportation options, energy? More importantly, how do we do so equitably and effectively, and ensuring respect for our ecosystem services? Our grand challenge is to make room for academic research that is informed by real world needs, and for real world solutions informed by academic research. Join us for a conversation on these questions and more, as we discuss how to build resilient and equitable communities over the next 30 years.
