Human Rights and Conflict Resolution
The University hosted a landmark, two-day symposium on human rights and conflict resolution in October 2006. The event, which drew more than 1,000 people, featured more than 50 leading scholars and activists. FDU Magazine shines the spotlight on some of the notable sessions that informed, provoked and inspired the gathering.
