Judith Kelley, Senior Associate Dean and Terry Sanford Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy, will give a lecture on her recently published book titled "Scorecard Diplomacy: Grading States to Influence their Reputation and Behavior." This lecture will address that, despite lacking traditional force, public grades are potent symbols that can evoke countries' concerns about their reputations and motivate them to address the problem. Jayne Huckerby, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic, will moderate. This is part of the Human Rights in Practice Series, which is organized by the International Human Rights Clinic and Center for International and Comparative Law. Co-sponsors include the Duke Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, Human Rights Law Society, and International Law Society. A book sale and signing will follow the lecture in the loggia. Lunch will be provided. For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Ali Prince at
