Empowering Rights through Research
As the democratic norms that embodied the post-World War II liberal international order have withered away, the rights of women, migrants and other marginalized groups have become acutely threatened. This pan-ASU initiative draws scholars from the Social Sciences and beyond to examine the ways that non-state actors generate innovative new pathways for the realization of rights and the promotion of social justice.
Our mission is to transform rigorous, cutting-edge human rights research
into policy relevant recommendations that advance the cause of social justice.
In February 2020, the Hub held its first visioning event, wherein experts joined together to create plans of action for the future ahead. The Hub is currently in preparation for the followup event, "Human rights on the edge: Progress and preparation." More information to follow.
