Judith Kelley | Human Rights in Practice: Scorecard Diplomacy

September 26, 2017

Judith Kelley, Senior Associate Dean and Terry Sanford Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy, lectured on her recently published book titled "Scorecard Diplomacy: Grading States to Influence their Reputation and Behavior." This lecture addressed the potent symbolism of public grades that, despite lacking traditional force, can evoke countries' concerns about their reputations and motivate them to address problems. Jayne Huckerby, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic, moderates. This is part of the Human Rights in Practice Series, which is organized by the International Human Rights Clinic and Center for International and Comparative Law. Co-sponsors include the Duke Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, Human Rights Law Society, and International Law Society.
