Pozen Visiting Professors

The Pozen Center brings a senior scholar or practitioner with a distinguished career in human rights to campus for one quarter of each academic year, to teach a seminar and offer a series of public lectures. The visiting professorship was created in 2009 through a generous gift from Richard and Ann Pozen, and seeks to advance the Center’s broader goals of bringing the theory and practice of human rights into productive and creative conversation.
