The Jack & Mae Nathanson Centre on Transnational Human Rights, Crime and Security studies transnational phenomena and normative issues at the intersections of human rights, crime and security.

One of the Nathanson Centre’s missions is to organize and sponsor events that tackle contemporary challenges in order to foster well-informed public debate. The Centre also encourages the development of fundamental and theoretical research programs related to its mandate, as well as dialogue amongst participating researchers. To these ends, it creates audio-visual and documentary records of most of its events, which are uploaded to Youtube and posted on this website to ensure their general accessibility and continuing relevance.
