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.
The GHR Hub is seeking to highlight the work of promising ASU graduate students. If you work with MA or PhD students at ASU consider recommending them to the Hub Executive Committee as GHR Grad Fellows.
An interdisciplinary two-part conference series: Part-one, "Progress and Preparation" will bring together all three ASU Hub working groups. Part-two, "The Future of International Human Rights Law & Practice," supported by the National Science Foundation, will serve as an opportunity for members who participated in the first workshop as well as graduate students, junior and senior faculty who are working on topics related to the future of international human rights law from other institutions to present draft work.
ASU welcomes two new faculty members to the Social Justice and Human Rights program.
