Human rights expert to speak at IPFW

A United Nations official will speak Friday afternoon at IPFW’s Conference on Grounding Human Rights.

David Marshall, the head of global issues for the U.N.’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, is among the featured speakers at the conference, which will be Friday and Saturday at the alumni center. Marshall has recommended that the U.N. re-examine the way it conducts peacekeeping and peace building in the world, according to IPFW.

Other speakers at the conference will include University of Notre Dame philosophy professor James Sterba and University of North Carolina humanities professor Mark Gibney Belk.

The conference, which will be from 8:30 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. each day, is sponsored by the IPFW Human Rights Institute. For information, email
