“Inequality and Exclusion: The Theory and Practice of Human Rights”


October 18-19, 2012

2012 marks the 300th anniversary of the Swiss writer and philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s birth, and the 250th anniversary of his Social Contract, one of the cornerstones of modern political thought.

To celebrate these milestones, the University of Illinois of Chicago, together with the French and Swiss consulates, will host a conference around the theme “Inequality and Exclusion: The Theory and Practice of Human Rights.”

This conference is free and open to the public.

Preregistration is not necessary, but is appreciated so we can calculate attendance.
