Honoring Sakiko Fukuda-Parr’s Award-Winning Book “Fulfilling Economic and Social Rights” and Its Application in the Habitat Commitment Index
Mar 1 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm
Join us to celebrate author Sakiko Fukuda-Parr and the research team translating New School research into action. Sakiko Fukuda-Parr’s book, Fulfilling Economic and Social Rights, written together with Terra Lawson-Remer and Susan Randolph, published by Oxford University Press in 2015, was named “The Best Book in Human Rights Scholarship” by the American Political Science Association in 2016. This ground-breaking book developed a methodology to determine the extent to which nation states and other jurisdictions have fulfilled their commitments for the provision of human rights. This methodology has been further adapted by the Global Urban Futures Project of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy to develop the Habitat Commitment Index (HCI), a tool to assess the degree[...]

Mar 1 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm
The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at The New School hosts a panel entitled “The Trump Executive Orders on Immigration and Refugees: A legal and policy discussion.” Donald Trump has issued Executive Orders on immigration that call for increased border enforcement, construction of a wall on the southwest border and mandatory detention of persons apprehended seeking unauthorized entry to the U.S. Trump’s Executive Order on “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry” imposes a 90 day travel ban on persons coming from seven predominantly Muslim countries, suspends U.S. refugee admissions, and cuts overall refugee admission to the U.S. by more than 50%. A panel of experts will discuss the legal and policy implications of the Executive Orders, and the[...]

A New Social Contract: Guaranteeing Dignity in a Precarious Economy 6:00 pm
A New Social Contract: Guaranteeing Dignity in a Precarious Economy
Mar 6 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 6 @ 8:00 pm
The United States is one of the wealthiest countries the world has seen, yet we live in extreme inequality and insecurity. From day laborers and factory workers to freelancers and academics, precarity is the new normal. Jobs, wages, health care, pensions: nothing is assured. Yet there is nothing inevitable about this precarity: it is the result of policy choices, and we, as a country can choose a new future. Many scholars and activists are sharing new visions for a more just, equitable society. Join us for a conversation exploring the pros and cons of a universal basic income, baby bonds, reverse income taxes, and other bold ideas to rewire our inequitable economy. Featuring: Alyssa Battistoni, Editor at Jacobin and PhD[...]
Politics of Shit in the South African Postcolony: Sanitation Activism and Insurgent Citizenship in Cape Town with Steven Robins 6:00 pm
Politics of Shit in the South African Postcolony: Sanitation Activism and Insurgent Citizenship in Cape Town with Steven Robins
Mar 6 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 6 @ 7:45 pm
The politics and poetics of infrastructure has become an important issue in anthropology and cognate disciplines. This talk examines how social movement activists in Cape Town, South Africa have sought to render politically legible the infrastructural inequalities within the post-apartheid city. The paper shows how these sanitation activists have contributed towards turning “shit matters”, which are typically shrouded in silence, shame, taboo and avoidance, into matters of public concern. Steven Robins is a professor of anthropology at Stellenbosch University. Moderated by assistant professor of International Affairs Antina von Schnitzler. This event is sponsored by Graduate Program in International Affairs and is part of the Africa at The New School Series

Using Data to Advance Dignity: Measuring Human Rights Performance of Countries
Mar 9 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Using Data to Advance Dignity: A new approach to measuring the Human Rights performance of countries, and how you can use it in your work There is a robust debate in human rights circles about the merits of quantitative measures of human rights at the country-level. Unfortunately, existing measures of Civil and Political Rights are piecemeal and of varying quality. Please join Dr K. Chad Clay, Dr Susan Randolph and Anne-Marie Brook in a thought-provoking discussion about how we can reinvent the way country-level Human Rights data are produced and used, in order to inspire more ethical behavior by states and other actors. This seminar will involve an introduction to the Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI), seek feedback on its[...]

Mar 9 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 9 @ 8:30 pm
In honor of Women History Month and as part of the Henry Cohen Lecture Series, we invite you to join us for the film screening Equal Means Equal immediately following a panel discussion. EQUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the[...]

College Affordability: Will New York Lead the Way? 9:00 am
College Affordability: Will New York Lead the Way?
Mar 16 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Governor Andrew Cuomo has grabbed national headlines with a bold proposal for “free college” in New York State. CUNY and SUNY would waive tuition for full-time students who graduate on time and come from families making $125,000 or less. The measure has popular support, but it is controversial. Low-income and undocumented students will see little help from Cuomo’s proposal, even as their college tuition costs increase. Private colleges may see a tuition cap. And the legislation does little to address the larger financial needs of the CUNY and SUNY systems. State politicians and advocacy groups are responding with college affordability plans of their own. What will emerge from the debate this spring? Join the Center for New York City Affairs[...]

With so much at stake, how can our media counter efforts that threaten freedom of speech and truth? Some subjects to be discussed include what to do when news outlets and journalists are silenced; how to holding governments and representatives accountable for providing the truth to its citizens, and how to recognize and understand propaganda and the role of fake news. The media’s role in this climate is multifaceted and, perhaps now more than ever, of the utmost importance. Speakers will give a broad spectrum of opinions in the many ways digital media is[...]
