The symposium—taking place on Saturday, March 4, at UCLA Law—will explore the intersection of the international human rights framework with the domestic legal, political, and social landscapes in the United States. It will offer a particular emphasis on critical perspectives, as well as the struggles of impacted communities advocating for social justice and their human rights.

Panel Three: The United States and Human Rights Accountability
This panel, at 2:00 p.m. ET, will explore different mechanisms for holding rights violators accountable within the U.S., including government entities and private actors, and the myriad challenges to ensuring accountability. In particular, the panel will examine how a transitional justice framework might be utilized to address racialized and other inequalities within the U.S., what options exist to address the rights violations of migrants in U.S. custody, and how corporate actors can be held accountable for human rights abuses committed abroad.
