Human Rights Scholar-Practitioners-in-Residence

The Center hosts visiting human rights researchers and advocates from around the world.  These visitors bring us new and challenging perspectives on human rights and advocacy. The program gives them the time and resources to reflect on their work, write, teach and speak. The program enlivens our own human rights research and educational community, and it creates the possibility for sustained partnerships with our visitors’ academic institutions and human rights organizations.
