The Pozen Family Center for Human Rights supports research projects allowing University of Chicago faculty to explore critical dimensions of human rights thought and practice. The Pozen Center encourages collaborative work across disciplines and schools, and projects that draw students and the broader University community into the research work of faculty. 

Projects can span anywhere from one to three years. They might include working group meetings, performances, workshops, conferences, and edited volumes. Alternatively, a project could operate as a laboratory designed to offer solutions to a particular human rights problem. The Pozen Center offers financial, strategic, and administrative support for these projects.
