Promoting Human Rights through Teaching, Scholarship, and Service.
AUWCL established the Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law as part of its long-standing commitment to international human rights and the rule of law. For over 25 years, the Center has worked with students, faculty and the international legal community to provide support for human rights initiatives in the U.S. and around the world through teaching, scholarship and service. The Center engages in exciting innovations in human rights education and advocacy by way of training, complementary education, outreach, workshops and conferences, and research and publications. All Center programming promotes the value of service, thereby grounding the Center as a core resource to the NGO community and a bridge between academia and civil society.
