Human Rights: Foundations, Challenges, and Advocacy

On this program, human rights serves as an entry point to frame a broader inquiry into the nature of dehumanization, oppression, and life affirming movements for justice. You will examine how the rhetoric and reality of human rights varies in four different locales by examining relevant and timely human rights issues such as transitional justice, gender equity, the geopolitics of conflict, and the rights of refugees, migrants, and indigenous peoples. Please visit our website for more information. This year, SIT will award over $1.5 million in scholarships and grants.
