2017 Anne and Sandy Dolowitz Lecture in Human Rights: "The Global Resurgence of Violent Extremism: A Panel Discussion"

Thursday, November 30, 2017, 5 - 7pm
College of Social Work (SW)

The annual Dolowitz Lecture in Human Rights was established in 2007 in the International Studies Program at the University of Utah. Given the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia and beyond, this year’s presentation will take the form of a panel discussion. Academic, civic, and student leaders will address the historical and contemporary dynamics of violent extremism in the US and around the globe. At issue are questions of ethnic nationalism, free speech, intolerance, and ideologies that justify or perpetuate violence. At stake is the very possibility of respectful and peaceful dialogue.
