Stanford Human Rights Center
The Stanford Human Rights Center provides tools for students, advocates, states, and civil society to better understand how to respect and protect human rights. The Center was created in 2013 to conduct applied human rights research. We promote events, student engagement, and public understanding of international human rights and global justice.
Our work focuses on public policy analysis in the areas of criminal justice reform, conditions of detention, and developing incentives for states and corporations to respect human rights. Although our main area of focus for this work is Latin America, our work on corporate accountability has taken us across the globe.
International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic
The Stanford International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic, launched in 2011, addresses a range of situations of rights abuse and violent conflict around the world. By providing direct representation to victims and by working with communities that have suffered or face potential abuse, the Clinic seeks both to train advocates and advance the cause of human rights and global justice.View International Human Rights Clinic
