February 3, 2015 (New York, NY) – The Leitner Center for International Law and Justice is delighted to announce the launch of a new human rights blog, Rights Wire, today. Rights Wire is a new online platform focusing on critical human rights issues locally and globally for the Fordham Law School, New York, and global community.
As serious human rights abuses persist across the globe and locally in New York City, coverage, commentary and discussion of human rights values as well as pragmatic solutions to continuing problems are more important than ever. Staffed by a core set of Fordham Law student staff writers, the blog will offer legal analysis, news recaps, opinion pieces, reviews, interviews, and photo essays. Rights Wire also will feature posts on the Center’s unique human rights work at the intersection of advocacy, training, and scholarship, foster discussions about developments in the human rights field, and connect the Leitner Center to the broader human rights community.
The Rights Wire blog welcomes reader feedback, thoughts, and opinions, and invites reader participation in the comments to each article.
Submissions from Fordham Law School students, faculty, staff and alumni are also welcome. To pitch an article idea, follow the instructions found on our Submissions page.
