Human Rights as the socialism of the 21st century

Human Rights as the socialism of the 21st century

William Forbath, a Texas law professor and author, was at the University of Oregon on April 7 to give a lecture on the social and economic rights movements across the Southern Hemisphere.

The lecture, “Human Rights: The Socialism of the 21st Century,” discussed the strengths and weaknesses of those movements, and how they work as vehicles of distributive justice.

Forbath, the Lloyd M. Bentsen Chair in Law at the University of Texas, is the Oregon Humanities Center’s 2010-11 Colin Ruagh Thomas O’Fallon Memorial Lecturer in Law and American Culture. The O’Fallon Lecture was established by a gift from Henry and Betsy Mayer, and was named in memory of their nephew – the son of law professor James O’Fallon and his wife, artist Ellen Thomas.
