Message from the Directors

The Academy was created to promote practical approaches to human rights and humanitarian law as well as to strengthen links between human rights organizations, practitioners, and educators worldwide. We hope to enhance the culture and prominence of human rights and humanitarian law around the world. Additionally, we wish to offer relevant, empowering training for scholars, practitioners, and students interested in the international human rights system and laws. The Academy accomplishes these tasks through its programs, partnerships, and scholarly endeavors.

The Academy is one of the many human rights programs at American University Washington College of Law, which include, among others, the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, the International Human Rights Clinic, the War Crimes Research Office, Impact Litigation Project, Women and International Law program and the UN Committee Against Torture Project.

We encourage you to browse our website and learn more about all of our projects.

Sincerely,

Claudia Martin and Diego Rodríguez-Pinzón
Co-Directors
