During the 2016 election, Donald Trump routinely highlighted the economic suffering faced by American workers, critiquing deinstrialization and arguing that trade agreements played a major role in the loss of American manufacturing jobs. Despite this, he has not indicated any interest in making trade agreements fairer by raising labor standards in foreign countries, as critics of international trade agreements, as well as some human rights proponents, have advocated. Panelists will include Cynthia Estlund (NYU Law School, Catherine A. Rein Professor of Law), Kevin Kolben (Rutgers Business School, Associate Professor), and will be moderated by Peter Pihos (Duke Thomspon Writing Program, Lecturing Fellow). This event, co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic and the Center for International and Comparative Law, is part of the on-going discussion series Conversations in Human Rights at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, bringing together panelists from other institutions and Duke faculty to engage with their research on hot-button international human rights issues. Please RSVP to Kate Abendroth at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, February 20th at noon.
