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.

On November 6-7 2014, the Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy will host its annual Human Rights Institute at Northeastern University School of Law (NUSL). PHRGE Institutes convene scholars, practitioners and advocates to explore a pressing social issue from a human rights perspective. This year’s Institute will analyze and evaluate the combination of initiatives known as “public education reform” from a human rights perspective. It will do so with an eye toward identifying policies that will help promote and support the human right to education (alongside all other human rights) for all U.S. school children.
