Kennedy Lecture in Global Social Issues
What Would Mrs. Roosevelt Say? A Theory of Discrimination on The Basis of Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity 75 Years After the Adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Wednesday, February 7, 2024 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Victor Madrigal-Borloz

Eleanor Roosevelt senior visiting researcher, Harvard Law School’s Human Rights Program

Victor Madrigal-BorlozThe incorporation to concepts of sexual orientation and gender identity as categories protected from discrimination under international human rights law has been part of a thirty-years long process. It is however clear that it rests substantively on the human rights framework conceived and created as part of the post-war development of an international order that is currently under great strain. It is also challenged by significant political forces, from the organization of Islamic Cooperation (sexual orientation) to the Republican and the Convervative parties in the United States and United Kingdom (gender identity).The lecture examines the process and creates a working theory of how it relates to the philosophical and political framework created by the Drafters.
