THE STORY:

The purpose of the 2011 Human Rights in Academia conference at Yale University is to bring academics and practitioners together to discuss the importance of developing and expanding upon existing human rights programs and initiatives within academic institutions at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The conference will be a forum for debating the place and importance of human rights studies in a global academic context.

A principled argument can be made that the study of human rights has not been given the institutional support and academic attention it deserves. In order to solve enduring problems of social and environmental injustice and inequality, we must conceptualize and sustain substantive academic inquiry and pedagogy in the field of human rights studies at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Advancing the status of human rights studies in academia while generating energy, collaboration, and action is the larger objective of the conference. We are deeply grateful to the leading academics and practiconers in human rights from across the nation who are coming to Yale to speak at the conference.
