Conference - "Dignity & Development: Advancing Justice and Rights through Courts, Restoration, and Politics"

(part of a series)

Location: Keough School of Global Affairs (View on map )


How can the human community respond to acts of trauma and injustice committed by those in power?

 What are the roles of:

  • International courts and other legal mechanisms?
  • Grassroots initiatives focused on health, healing, and well-being?
  • Politics on the international stage?

Join the Keough School of Global Affairs as we explore diverse approaches to supporting dignity and integral human development, especially where injustices—both historical and ongoing—cause harm and humiliation. Hear insights from global experts. Learn about approaches that seek to transform traumatized individuals and peoples, bolster institutions, and check the illegitimate uses of state power.

A blended conference

We will offer both in-person and online options for engaging with conference content. Join us in person to take advantage of additional networking and learning opportunities during meals and in small-group breakout sessions at the University of Notre Dame’s world-renowned campus.

The Keough School of Global Affairs

The University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs responds to the interconnected nature of global challenges by connecting and convening students, researchers, and policymakers from traditionally unrelated fields of study, and by engaging with people on the ground who are suffering, along with stakeholders in government, the private sector, and civil society. We are guided by the principle of integral human development — a positive vision of human flourishing centered on the idea that the dignity of the human person is expressed not only in work and economic activity, but also in cultural richness, artistic creativity, religious belonging, and spiritual practice.
