The Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy (PHRGE) is at the center of the School of Law’s human rights efforts and works closely with scholars, institutions and advocates nationally and internationally to address issues of human rights and economic development. Reflecting our faculty's interests, PHRGE is particularly engaged with the international movement to promote economic, social and cultural (ESC) rights.
