Social Justice and Human Rights Conference a Success

The Social Justice and Human Rights Conference took place on April 27-28 with more than 145 people in attendance during the course of the two days. “It was a very successful event,” Conference Director Lambert Zuidervaart reports, “and it creates room for more conversations in the future. I am very grateful for the support shown by ICS donors, granting agencies such as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Priscilla and Stanford Reid Trust, and several conference sponsors.” Co-hosted by the ICS Centre for Philosophy, Religion and Social Ethics (CPRSE) and by Emmanuel College, the conference will give rise to further dialogue on CPRSE’s Ground Motive web log (http://www.groundmotive.net). Highlights will appear in session summaries and a conference documentary video, which are currently being prepared. Stay tuned to CPRSE’s webpage (http://www.icscanada.edu/research) for the latest details.
