In the final episode of the second season of Inside the Issues, host David Welch talks to Conrad Grebel University College's Lowell Ewert on the conceptual links between peace and human rights law. "These two concepts desperately need each other in order to create the humane and just world that we want," Ewert says. He goes on to outline the potential for human rights to be contextualized in different situations, while defining key principles that need to be maintained to ensure basic protections are in place.

Now in its second season, the Inside the Issues weekly podcast series will run from October 2011 to April 2012, covering timely and candid discussions on issues related to the core areas of CIGI expertise: Global Economy, Global Security & Politics, and International Law. Join host and CIGI Chair David Welch as he goes in depth with leading experts on the most pressing global governance challenges facing the international community today.
