On November 26, 2015, Prof. Steven Livingston of George Washington University, Washington DC, held a guest lecture at the offices of the SFB 700. The presentation was titled “Human Rights in Areas of Limited Statehood: Looking Beyond the Boomerang and Spiral Models.”
The event was moderated by Dr. Gregor Walter-Drop. Following the lecture, a heated discussion took place on the opportunities and limits of new technologies in protecting human rights. Prof. Steven Livingston joined the SFB 700 as a visiting scholar until the end of 2016 to discuss his research further and support the work of the SFB.
