Shirin Ebadi, human rights activist

Shirin Ebadi, a lawyer and human right’s activist in Iran and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, is giving a free and open to the public speech at Lehigh University’s Packard Auditorium on Monday at 7:45. A bit of a drive, granted, but may be worth it if you’re interested…

Her talk is entitled “Islam, Human Rights and Democracy”.

Program information

She published an article two weeks ago in the LA Times arguing that the US and UN should support nuclear transparency in Iran instead of isolating it with sanctions. The article is likely the skeleton on which her speech will be based.
