The Human Rights Program works on a range of issues through our Academic Program and our International Human Rights Clinic. We specialize in thematic topics and geographic regions where faculty and staff have particular commitment, expertise, and experience. In these areas, we concentrate our research pursuits as well as our practice and partnerships, helping to shape doctrine, discourse, and policy. Ongoing research and advocacy continues in the areas listed on the left.

Over the years, as HRP has changed, so too has the research it undertakes. In some instances, HRP has shifted its priorities as long-term litigation came to a close. In other instances, clinical instructors brought their expertise to our community for several years before moving on.
