“Localizing Human Rights in Cities,” appears in the Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice.

Tamar Ezer, faculty director of the Human Rights Program, acting director of the Human Rights Clinic, and lecturer in law, recently published an article, “Localizing Human Rights in Cities,” in the Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice.

Prior to her time at Miami Law, Ezer taught and supervised projects at Yale Law School as a lecturer in law, visiting scholar with the Schell Center for International Human Rights, and executive director of the Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy. Ezer further taught International Women’s Rights at Tulane Law School’s summer program and in the Georgetown University Law Center’s International Women’s Human Rights Clinic, where she supervised test cases challenging discriminatory laws and oversaw fact-finding and legislative projects in Nigeria, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, and the Philippines.

Additionally, Ezer served as deputy director of the Law and Health Initiative of the Open Society Public Health Program, where she focused on legal advocacy to advance health and human rights in Eastern and Southern Africa, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. This encompassed work on reproductive health, violations in health care settings, HIV, palliative care, drug policy, and intersections between access to justice and health. She also clerked for Judge Robert Sweet at the Southern District of New York and Justice Dorit Beinisch at the Supreme Court of Israel.
