The PHRGE Institute convenes scholars, advocates and activists to explore a pressing human rights issue from a human rights perspective. This year’s Institute will focus on land rights and will pay special attention to proposals to develop a Land Tenure Security Index as a tool to help vulnerable rural populations secure their land tenure. PHRGE Visiting Scholar, Alfred Brownell, will host the 2017 institute. Mr. Brownell is a Liberian human rights lawyer who founded Green Advocates, Liberia, and has worked extensively on human rights and environmental law at national, regional and international levels.
