PHRGE in Geneva: Day 1

Hannah Adams, a student at Northeastern University School of Law (NUSL).  She is in Geneva representing  NUSL’s Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy (PHRGE) at the United Nations review of U.S. fulfillment of treaty obligations under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD).  PHRGE and the Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute‘s have collaborated on a shadow report on access to justice in civil cases here.  Such shadow reports provide a civil society perspective on information included in the U.S. government in its report to the CERD Committee. Both PHRGE and the Columbia institute are affiliated with the U.S. Human Rights Network, which is coordinating U.S. civil society participation in the CERD review.
