About the Event
The Center for American and International Law (CAIL) is proud to present Hauwa Ibrahim, international human rights lawyer at "Bold Voices: One Women + the Rule of Law" at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas on January 11. Ibrahim, a 2000 alumna of CAIL's Academy of American and International Law, is known worldwide for defending women and children condemned under the Islamic Sharia laws in northern Nigeria.
Mark Smith, CAIL's former president, will moderate the conversation with Ibrahim. She will share riveting personal stories from her career, including her role in helping secure intelligence leading to the release of Nigerian school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram. Ibrahim will discuss how this experience inspired her research about tapping into the "soft power of mothers" to modify the structure of injustices to protect children from extremism and fundamentalism.
Registration for this event is complimentary. Registration is required. Event will begin at 6:00 PM.
