Book Launch: “Power, Suffering, and the Struggle for Dignity”

Welcome to the launch of the new book by Alicia Ely Yamin, Policy Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University and Global Fellow of the Centre on Law & Social Transformation.

At the launch Professor Paul Hunt, former UN Special Rapporteur on the right to health, Jashodhara Dasgupta, SAHAYOG and Convenor, International Initiative on Maternal Mortality & Human Rights, and Siri Gloppen, director of the Centre of Law & Social Transformation, will engage in a conversation with the author about the book, about which Paul Farmer, in his foreword says:
“This book deftly illustrates the core purpose of a human rights-based approach—eradicating the suffering arising from dramatic inequality within and between nations.”

The launch is hosted by the Centre on Law & Social Transformation in collaboration with Norad. It is free and open to all and will be followed by an informal reception.
