The HagueDV Project offered a live, global webcast on Human Rights Day 2010. Actors from the world renown Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis performed staged readings of battered mothers' stories as told to us in our recently completed NIJ-funded study on Hague Convention cases. These readings were interspersed with commentary by leading scholars in law and social science about how Hague hearings should consider domestic violence. The event was FREE anywhere in the world online thanks to our partnership with West LegalEdcenter and the Guthrie Theatre and with generous support from the law firm of Robins, Kaplan, Miller and Ciresi, LLP and Greater Twin Cities United Way. Over 1,200 people attended. The video broadcast along with another two-hour "Nuts 'N Bolts" session on representing battered mothers who are respondents in Hague cases are now available through the HagueDV Project.
