Visit by Columbia University Students
A group of law students from the Columbia University Human Rights Advocates Program visited the Panel on October 19, 2015 to discuss the role and work of the Panel. This visit was part of the Inspection Panel’s ongoing relationship with law schools of various universities, such as American, Yale, and New York Universities. In the course of the two-hour meeting, Bank staff gave a presentation on the role and mandate of the Inspection Panel and its current cases, and also discussed lessons emerging from its work. The visiting ten human rights practitioners, who come from different parts of the world, shared their experiences working on human rights issues in diverse contexts and discussed several aspects of their work with the Panel team.
