Human Rights Interest Group

The Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy was created as a result of the deep interest and long-standing work in human rights among our faculty, administrators and students. Among other things, this work takes the form of legal advocacy, activism and scholarship on workers' rights, poverty, public health, migration, racial, gender and sexual discrimination, disability rights, globalization, development and the environment. More than two-thirds of the faculty, as well as senior administrators, participate regularly in a Human Rights Interest Group that meets to discuss contemporary human rights issues. For faculty bios and descriptions of their extensive and groundbreaking human rights-related work, see the faculty section of the School of Law's Website.
