THE HUMAN RIGHTS IMPACTS OF COVID-19: A Conversation with Lou Charbonneau, Rajan Menon, and Linda Villarosa

OCTOBER 15, 6:30-8:30 PM

Join Zoom Meeting


Louis Charbonneau is the United Nations director at Human Rights Watch. Prior to joining HRW in 2016, he was a journalist for more than two decades in the U.S., Europe and Asia. His last post was as UN bureau chief for Reuters. He won several awards for his reporting on the UN. He is also pursuing a PhD in political science at the City University of New York Graduate Center.

Rajan Menon holds the Anne and Bernard Spitzer Chair in International Relations at the Powell School, City College of New York. He is also a Senior Research Scholar at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University, and a Non-Resident Fellow at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft. He has been a Fellow at the Carnegie Council on Ethics in International Affairs and the New America Foundation; an Academic Fellow at the Carnegie Corporation; a Research Scholar at the Kennan Institute, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (the Wilson Center), and a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. His two most recent books are Conflict in Ukraine: The Unwinding of the Post-Cold War Order, coauthored with Eugene Rumer (MIT Press, 2015), and The Conceit of Humanitarian Intervention (Oxford University Press, 2016).

Linda Villarosa is a contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine, covering race and public health and a former executive editor at Essence Magazine. Her 2018 Times Magazine cover story on infant and maternal mortality in black mothers and babies was nominated for a National Magazine Award. Last year she contributed to the ground breaking 1619 Project. Her essay highlighted physiological myths, based on race, that have endured since slavery. Linda's April 29 cover story examined race, health disparities and COVID-19 through the lens of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club of New Orleans, and her August 2 article, The Refinery Next Door, looked at environmental justice in Philadelphia. Linda teaches journalism and Black Studies at the City College of New York and is writing the book Under the Skin: Race, Inequality and the Health of a Nation, which will be published by Doubleday in 2021.
