Working Groups

The Rapoport Center sponsors collaborative working groups that research various human rights topics that our affiliated faculty initiate. These groups are comprised of faculty and students from diverse disciplines across campus. The goals of the working group program include: identifying and generating sustained attention to critical issues on the leading edge of human rights scholarship; fostering ongoing interaction and intellectual cooperation among affiliated faculty; and encouraging the development of a unique brand of human rights scholarship that is multidisciplinary, critical, theoretically innovative, and empirically and practically informed.
