What will the future of human rights look like after the 2016 election? How have religious traditions shaped our thinking about human dignity and democracy in the past, and how might the relationship between religion and human rights change in a time marked by developments such as populist movements, Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump? Our guest scholar, Professor Samuel Moyn, will join an interdisciplinary panel of CU and DU faculty to explore these questions, reflecting on the fraught history—and uncertain future— of religion and human rights.
