Conference: "Walls: What They Make and What They Break"

Thu, February 25, 2010 | Eidman Court Room, UT School of Law

The 2-day conference proposes: first, to facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion of the effects of walls on the human rights of marginalized communities (and in the production of the marginalized status of those same communities) and their attendant environmental and cultural eventualities; second, to examine the roles of walls in re-making international borders and re-defining issues of private v. public and questions of national security; and third to consider the role of international and domestic law and legal advocacy in both challenging and sustaining walls.
