QuantitativeHRQuantitative analyses have become critical tools in human rights data analysis. They can estimate the magnitude and location and timing of violations, and they can measure the effect international efforts for mitigation. But few quantitative scientists study human rights issues. The purpose of this conference is to review what has been done at the intersection of rights and mathematical modeling, identify technical and political challenges, and develop plans for growing the cadre who work in this field.

This conference is hosted by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics. Support for this conference comes in part from Center for Human Rights Science at Carnegie Mellon.

Climate-changeThe intersection of climate ethics and climate economics is a fertile and important area of research. Deep questions span the two disciplines, concerning the significance of uncertainty about catastrophic outcomes, the valuation of non-market goods, the appropriate weight we should place on the welfare of future generations, and the valuation of futures in which very different amounts of people exist. Co-sponsors include: Fuqua’s Center for Energy, Development and the Global Environment (EDGE), Duke Energy Initiative, The Kenan Institute for Ethics, Duke Department of Philosophy, Duke Green Grant Fund.

Wednesday, March 2 – Friday, March 4

John D. Graham, Lamb Fellow Practitioner with Rethinking Regulation at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, will be giving a seminar entitled “Executive Action on the Home Front: Domestic Policy in the Obama Administration.” The research asks whether, through more creative use of executive power, President Obama could have accomplished even more of his policy agenda, and at less political cost to his Party.

From 2001-2006, Dr. Graham served as Administrator at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. Since 2008, he has been the dean of the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in politics and economics at Wake Forest University, his Master of Arts in public policy at Duke University, and his PhD at Carnegie-Mellon.
