Event description

Description

In 2015, human rights lawyer Philip Alston, the newly appointed 'UN Special Rapporteur for Extreme Poverty' issued a "clarion call" to the human rights movement.

Major human rights organisations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have been reluctant to factor questions of distribution and resources into their advocacy, he charged, and consequently the deep structures that perpetuate inequality have been left untouched. Jessica Whyte, Senior Lecturer from Western Sydney University, will explore the reasons for this marginalisation.
