Schwartz Lecture to Feature Gender, Human Rights, and Peace Agreements

Lecturer charts the role of Gender in achieving effective peace agreements

September 9, 2002

 

In war-torn countries, creating peace agreements that consider the human rights of all citizens is considered pivotal in creating a secure environment. Yet, consideration of gender relations has been conspicuously absent from these processes. Christine Chinkin, Professor of International Law at the London School of Economics, will address this issue as she presents the annual Schwartz Lecture on Dispute Resolution at the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University on September 19, 2002.

The lecture, "Gender, Human Rights, and Peace Agreements," will be held at 4 p.m. in the auditorium of Drinko Hall, 55 West 12th Avenue. Admission is free and open to the public.

The Schwartz Lecture on Dispute Resolution was established in 1992 as a result of the generosity of the late Stanley Schwartz Jr. ’47 and the Schwartz family. Each lecture is published in the interdisciplinary Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution, in keeping with Mr. Schwartz’s interest in the promotion of scholarly publication in the area of dispute resolution.

The Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University is Ohio’s flagship law school. Approximately 650 students attend classes at the school’s John Deaver Drinko Hall, located at 55 West 12th Avenue, Columbus.
