Center Celebrates 25th Anniversary!

For over 25 years, the Center has worked with students, faculty and the international legal community to provide scholarship and support for human rights initiatives around the world, creating opportunities for students, practitioners and activists through training, outreach, workshops and conferences, and research and publications.  The Center has also created a host of original projects and has built projects to support faculty initiatives which have often been on the cutting edge of emerging areas of international law.  All this has helped to ground the Center as a core resource to the NGO community and a bridge between academia and activists. On April 11-12, the Center celebrated its achievements by hosting a human rights networking event and a day-long conference, featuring panel discussions on the core issue areas of the Center.
