DISCUSSION GROUP: HUMAN RIGHTS Professor Emeritus Henry Steiner and Visiting Professor Fionnuala Ní Aoláin offer an interactive discussion group that will meet on five Tuesdays from 5:00-7:00 p.m. during the spring semester. Our first meeting is February 12. The group is open to 2L, 3L and graduate students, and is limited to ten participants. This is not an offering of Harvard Law School but a personal project of the two teachers. Participants will not receive any academic credit. There will be no paper or exam. Readings of modest length will be distributed and should be read before our meetings. The discussions among participants, led by the co-teachers, examine three contemporary human rights topics. The issues that they raise involve religion, speech/expression, cultural identity, discrimination based on gender or ethnicity, and features of democratic government. Several Western European countries differ from the United States about the governmental action or policies involved in these topics. That is, they differ about whether such action and policies are consistent with or violations of international human rights or national constitutions. The topics exploring the substance of and reasons for these differences are: (1) governmental regulation prohibiting the wearing of certain dress in public spaces, particularly by Muslim immigrant women and principally for religious reasons; (2) governmental proscription of hate speech and blasphemy offending particular ethnic and religious groups; and (3) governmental regulation requiring or prohibiting use of quotas with respect to participation by women or members of ethnic/racial groups in academic and other institutions as well as in electoral politics. Students interested in learning more about this offering should send an email to hsteiner at law.harvard.edu not later than Friday January 18 , noting Discussion Group in the subject line. They will receive by return email additional information about the group and topics enabling them to decide whether to apply to participate in this venture.
