Suzannah Phillips Presents on Human Trafficking at the United Nations

October 25, 2013 | CUNY School of Law

Suzannah Phillips, fellow with the International Women’s Human Rights Clinic at CUNY Law, was invited to present at a Global Consultation on the Right to an Effective Remedy for Trafficked Persons hosted by the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Trafficking at the United Nations on October 24.

Widely recognized for its expertise and contributions to gender jurisprudence and human rights practice, the International Women’s Human Rights (IWHR) Clinic at CUNY Law advocates before international and regional human rights bodies and national and local courts and legal institutions. IWHR projects combat gender discrimination and sexual violence, advance reproductive and sexual rights and economic and social rights, and promote women’s participation and empowerment. By addressing problems through the lens of human rights, IWHR students use international human rights law and institutions to challenge and expand rights protections in both domestic and international fora.
