4:30 PM - 6:00 PM Stein Scholars Events
Stein Scholars Event - Standards of Police Conduct

Recent tragic events raise the question of what standards of conduct police should follow in their day to day interactions with people. It is difficult to define how far the police mission to serve and protect extends and what proper police conduct is in different cases. In New York, a frequent discussion topic is the 'broken windows theory,' the idea that heavily enforcing minor violations and 'quality of life' crimes is the best way to reduce violent crime. This theory has resulted in a disproportionately heavy police presence in low income and minority neighborhoods, and the collateral effects of this policing strategy has been the topic of vigorous debate in and out of the courtroom. The Stein Scholars present a fair and balanced discussion on whether the 'broken windows theory' is a wise or fair use of police resources and what other models of policing might be preferable.

 

Speakers:

LeShera Hardy, Public Defender, Brooklyn Defender Services

Austin Ashe, Ph.D Candidate, Duke University

Andrea Ritchie, Police Misconduct Attorney, Streetwise and Safe

Cynthia Conti-Cook, Special Litigation Unit Staff Attorney, Legal Aid Society

Additional Speakers TBD

From 1992 to 1996, he served in EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, and then served with distinction as a federal prosecutor in the Department of Justice Environmental Crimes Section.  In private practice, Garbow was a litigation partner and junior partner at two major international firms.  Garbow has served on the boards of directors, and in other capacities, for various environmental and international human rights organizations.  Previously, he held leadership positions in the American Bar Association’s International Human Rights Committee.

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Panel Discussion on LGBT Rights in South Asia

For LGBT people, South Asia holds many contradictions. It has a rich history of non-normative genders and sexualities, yet several countries still criminalize homosexuality. High level courts have issued groundbreaking judgments but also upheld punitive laws. Even countries with progressive legal frameworks struggle to implement their protections on the ground. In a panel discussion, leading experts will discuss the current state of LGBT rights in the region, the principle challenges facing activists, and possibilities for future advocacy. The panel will include Shale Ahmed, founder of Bandhu Social Welfare Society and one of Bangladesh’s leading LGBT activists, and Rashima Kwatra, formerly of the UNDP’s Being LGBT in Asia program. Other speakers to be confirmed. A reception will follow.
