Despite growing recognition of the need to advance the social determinants of health as a question of human rights and social justice, there is little clarity on what human rights norms, strategies, and actors offer in advancing discourse and practice in this area. Join the Comparative Program on Health and Society as we bring together some of the world’s leading scholars and practitioners to explore these questions at an international symposium. We are honoured to begin the symposium in the evening of the 4th May with a keynote lecture by the incomparable Professor Amartya Sen (Harvard University), followed on 5 May by a full day conference.
