Professor Bravo Lectures on Recent Scholarship at West Virginia University
Professor Karen Bravo discussed her current research during a talk titled “Illicit International Markets” on January 15, 2012, at West Virginia University College of Law in Morgantown. The discussion was the topic of a post by Professor Jena Martin Amerson on her blog “The Business of Human Rights.”
Offering three examples of markets which have significant human rights implications, Professor Bravo talked about low caste women in India who serve as surrogate mothers, the black market for harvested organs, and the market for ivory harvesting.
Professor Bravo is a John S. Grimes Fellow, a Dean’s Fellow, and Associate Dean for International Affairs.
