American human rights scholar visits JSW Law

Professor Elizabeth Wilson, a visiting faculty member at the S.I. Newhouse Center for Law and Justice of Rutgers Law School in Newark, New Jersey (USA), spent two days at the law school campus, talking with students about feminism and law, Buddhism and law, and the role of human rights in a legal framework.

Professor Wilson is on leave this semester, studying and working in Delhi, India, on a Fulbright-Nehru Senior Scholarship.  She is researching her new book, Be The Change: Gandhi and the Human Rights Project, which is due to be published by Columbia University Press.

Professor Wilson also met with faculty members, in particular philosophy professor Pema Wangdi, to discuss the substance of her book, which revisits Gandhi’s contributions to modern human rights paradigms.
