Dear all,

The Northwestern University Conference on Human Rights (NUCHR) begins 
its eighth annual three-day conference entitled “Human Rights in 
Transit: Issues of Forced Migration” on Thursday, January 20th. NUCHR 
will welcome 43 undergraduate delegates to the conference this year: 
four from Northwestern, two from Northwestern’s campus in Qatar, and the 
remaining delegates from universities around the country, with a strong 
presence from Stanford, Barnard and the University of Chicago.

NUCHR is the largest undergraduate student-organized and 
student-attended conference on human rights in the United States. It is 
housed in Northwestern’s Buffett Center for International and 
Comparative Studies and funded by individual contributions from the 
university’s schools and academic departments. Through programming 
events, seminars, exposure trips and the culminating conference, NUCHR 
provides a mechanism for critical discourse in order to challenge 
assumptions and broaden perceptions on international human rights issues 
at Northwestern and beyond. This year’s organization is directed by 
Scott Chilberg, Julie Kornfeld and Katharine Nasielski, all Northwestern 
University seniors, and is composed of a twenty-person executive board 
and 40 general members.

The topic for this year’s conference was chosen by the entirety of the 
organization last spring.  After discussing several themes, the 
organization selected forced migration unanimously.

NUCHR 2011 will feature Dr. Barbara Harrell-Bond for the closing keynote 
address. Bond is internationally recognized as an expert on human rights 
and migration issues, having founded the Refugee Studies Centre at 
Oxford and a refugee studies program at the American University in Cairo.
Rose Mapendo, a former Congolese refugee who was named 2009 U.N. 
Humanitarian of the Year, will give the middle keynote address.
“(Mapendo) was chosen because of her unique story about being a 
Congolese refugee and the founder and spokesperson of Mapendo 
International, a nonprofit organization that works to fill the needs of 
people affected by conflict that have yet to receive proper humanitarian 
assistance,” said Kornfeld.

Additional speakers at the event, who will be divided into four panels 
on different topics within the larger theme, include various migration 
and human rights experts, including Howard Adelman, Deborah Anker, Susan 
Gzesh, Maureen Lynch, Andrew Rasmussen, Abigail Price, Pamela Goldberg, 
Bob Carey, Stephanie Nawyn, Dr. Marie Provine, David W. Haines, Jack 
Martin, Oscar Chacon and Ogenga Otunnu.
