The Minnesota International Relations Colloquium is a series of informal seminars and presentations organized by the University of Minnesota graduate students of International Relations; its primary goal is to support students and faculty in participating in academically informed and politically engaged conversations on various issues related to international relations. Join the colloquium on October 19, 2015, as it hosts Professor James Ron of the Humphrey School and Department of Political Science. In his presentation (co-sponsored by the Human Rights Program), Ron will be discussing his recent work with David Crow of the Center for Economic Research and Teaching on studying local perceptions of trust in human rights organizations from around the world. From Morocco to Mexico, from Colombia to India, listen to Professor Ron describe the more nuanced understandings of the relationship between NGOs, rights discourse, and individuals. The discussant will be human rights scholar and political science Ph.D. candidate Bridget Marchesi, and refreshments will be served. To learn more about the Colloquium, click here.
