India, Brazil, and South Africa (known as the IBSA group), along with countries such as Mexico, Indonesia, and Turkey are participating more intensively in global governance. The FES New York Office & Hunter College’s Department of Political Science organized this workshop at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute to focus on how these and other Democratic Emerging Powers (or DEPs) engage as key stakeholders within multilateral institutions that shape the international human rights system. Among the panelists were Kenneth Roth, Executive Director of Human Rights Watch (pictured on the left); Jonathan Fanton, Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute (pictured on the right); Rob Jenkins, Dept. of Political Science, Hunter College; Bertrand Ramcharan, President of UPR Info, and Emma Mawdsley, Dept. of Geography, Cambridge University.
