The Human Rights Program and International Human Rights Clinic work on a range of issues. 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 and the Clinic have changed, so too have the research and advocacy they undertake. For example, in some instances, the Clinic 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.
