Eric Gitari, Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (NGLHRC) in Kenya, will give a talk on "Litigating LGBTIQ Rights: The Kenya Experience." Gitari will draw from social factors (constitutional dictatorship, poverty, institutional corruption, etc) underlying the remaking of Kenya's Constitution in 2010, from its ongoing implementation, and from his own involvement in three pending test cases concerning sexual orientation and gender identity. The talk will be moderated by Larry Helfer, Harry R. Chadwick, Sr. Professor Law and Co-Director of the Center for International and Comparative Law. This is part of the Human Rights in Practice series, which is co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, and Center for International and Comparative Law. Additional co-sponsors include the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, FuquaPride, Human Rights Law Society, Outlaw and International Law Society. Lunch will be provided. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Ali Prince at firstname.lastname@example.org.
