Date:

12 January - 16 March 2021

Time:

18:00 - 19:15

Location:

MS Teams

Join the conversation on diversity and inclusion! The new THUAS Reading Group on Diversity invites every interested student into a shared, open conversation about diversity and inclusion. Join the online weekly conversation on the meaning of diversity, global governance, intersectionality and beyond.

The reading group is an initiative of Christine Tremblay, researcher at the Centre of Expertise on Global Governance and lecturer at the International and European Law programme. On a weekly basis, she will engage in a dialogue with students on different aspects of diversity. The dialogue would begin from an assigned reading on the theme of the week.

The reading group is open to all students of THUAS who are interested in the discussion. The more diverse the group is, the better. Some readings are more legal than others, but the week's assigned reading is only the starting point of the discussion.
