University Center Zurich
Dr. Mark Vopat presented his paper “Children, Rights and Sexuality” at the 31st Annual Conference of the Society for Applied Philosophy held at the University of Zurich, in Zurich, Switzerland.

As stated on their webpage:

The Society for Applied Philosophy was founded in 1982 with the aim of promoting philosophical study and research that has a direct bearing on areas of practical concern. It arose from an increasing awareness that many topics of public debate are capable of being illuminated by the critical, analytic approach characteristic of philosophy, and by direct consideration of questions of value. These topics come from a number of different areas of social life – law, politics, economics, science, technology, medicine and education are among the most obvious. The purpose of the SAP is foster and promote philosophical work that is intended to make a constructive contribution to problems in these areas.
