HR NYC 2016 - Program Updates and Registration

First, we are pleased to confirm the following plenary sessions:

Monday
Opening Roundtable:
Seyla Benhabib, Yale University
Stephen Hopgood, SOAS
Samuel Moyn, Harvard University

Tuesday:
Plenary Address: Human Rights and Global Health Crises
Elin Gursky, Research Director, UN High-Level Panel on the Response to Global Health Crises

Wednesday:

We are very excited that these eminent practitioners and academics have agreed to speak at the conference, and will announce further plenary sessions soon.

Second, please remember that all who are on the program must register for the conference by 1 February (and sooner if possible to facilitate planning). After that date, the system will automatically remove you from the program and we will begin looking for a replacement for you on the program. If you have co-authors who will not be attending, please let us know before 1 February so we can note that in the system. If you find that you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we can try to replace your paper on the program with one of the many excellent papers we are unable to accept. If you have any questions or concerns about this deadline, please contact us as soon as possible and before the deadline.

Third, on our travel page we have a listing of a few select hotels which have agreed to offer discounts for conference participants. In addition, we are offering dormitory rooms close to the venue at very reasonable rates. These are limited in number, so book early.

Fourth, for those who may need a visa, we are happy to provide a letter confirming your participation to include with your application. You can check to see whether you will need a visa on the U.S. Department of State’s website. Many coming from outside of the US may be eligible for the Visa Waiver program. If you do require a visa letter, please contact us after you have registered and give us sufficient lead time (at least 7-10 business days) to produce the letter.

Fifth, don’t forget that we have partnered with the Academic Council on the United Nations System, which is holding its annual conference at the same venue immediately after. The theme of the conference is Meeting the Challenges of Development and Diversity, and there is still time to submit a paper proposal (deadline is 31 March).

Finally, if you have any questions which are not answered on the website,feel free to contact us via e-mail: HRjc2016@global-human-rights.com. And follow us on Twitter to receive updates and to help us spread the word about the conference: @HRjc2016.
