Human Rights Initiatives

The Human Rights Program students, faculty, and staff regularly engage in projects on and off campus supporting both domestic and international human rights issues. Ongoing projects include exploring the Crisis of Humanitarianism, Health and Human Rights, and Human Rights at Home. Past projects under the Human Rights at Home initiative include a Curriculuum Development Project and the Chicago Police Torture Cases Archive. Future initiatives that faculty committees are currently exploring include the ideas of Rights and Duties and Women's Rights as Human Rights. Information about these initiatives will be available here as the projects develop.
