Human Rights Center Research Fellows


The Human Rights Center Research Fellows Program is an initiative to stimulate and sustain human rights scholarship at the University of Dayton.
The Human Rights Center will provide stipends in the amount of $5,000[1] to three faculty members to enable them to conduct theoretical or applied research that seeks to advance the theory and practice of human rights advocacy. Adopting a broad human rights framework, the Center encourages proposals from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. The Center especially encourages research proposals that align with the Center’s strategic research priorities in the areas of:

  • Poverty and development
  • Peace, conflict-resolution and non-violence
  • Media, communications and human rights
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Climate change and human rights

In addition to conducting research intended for presentation at professional conferences and publication, Human Rights Research Fellows will present their research at the Human Rights Center’s colloquia series or at the Center’s Social Practice of Human Rights conference in October 2015. Applications for 2016 will be open in January 2016.
