OXFORD CONSORTIUM ON HUMAN RIGHTS (OCHR)
The Oxford Consortium for Human Rights (OCHR) hosted its Training and Conference Workshop on “Human Rights, Armed Conflict, and the Struggle for Peace” at Magdalen College at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom last March 14-20, 2022. The sessions focused on the varied approaches to international human rights, humanitarian legal instruments, and the impact of community action on global politics.
Lakeisha Phillips, Michaelyn Preston, and Lucas Carvalho were selected to represent Sewanee for their training and interests in international security, human rights, and international law. Dr. Rodelio (Rae) Manacsa of the Department of Politics headed the Sewanee delegation in Oxford. The participants deepened their understanding of international human rights and humanitarian work, learning from experts and practitioners from academia, international organizations, and other student participants from various academic disciplines and life experiences. It was a significant, valuable, and remarkable experience!
