Projects & Publications
The Rapoport Center endeavors to bring about sustained attention to critical issues on the leading edge of human rights scholarship and advocacy through the development of a unique brand of human rights research that is multidisciplinary, critical, theoretically innovative, empirically and practically informed. For this reason, the Rapoport Center works to publish work that will inform, equip, and spur on the study and practice of human rights at the University of Texas and abroad.
In response to the lively debate around the construction of the wall and seeing a need for more in-depth investigation and analysis, a multi-disciplinary collective of faculty and students at the University of Texas at Austin formed to analyze the human rights impact of the construction of a border wall on the Texas/Mexico border.
