Dawn approaches over rolling green hills, with a haze of morning light.


The Human Rights Center bridges the worlds of academia, policy, and practice by conducting evidence-based research into chronic and emerging issues cutting across international justice, global health, the changing climate, and armed conflict. Our dedicated programs allow us to develop specialized portfolios that make long-term impact. Built with the vision of our research directors and funded over multiple years, our programs are a cornerstone of our blended practitioner-academic approach to research. To remain flexible and responsive to changing conditions and priorities in the human rights world, we engage in stand-alone projects and initiatives that are not program-based. You can find a full record of both independent and programmatic projects in our work archive here.
