Human Rights Research League
Research. Education. Advocacy. Development. (R.E.A.D.)
The Human Rights Research League (HRRL) is a non-governmental organization aiming at protecting individuals by placing human rights abuses, acts contrary to international humanitarian law, systemic grievances as well as humanitarian emergencies on the agenda. HRRL seeks to contribute to knowledge and research based public discussion and problem analysis without geographical, political, confessional or other limitations or alignments.
As our name suggests, we are an organization primarily focused on research from the basis of a strong academic foundation. However, we recognize that lasting impact and positive change also depend on connecting academics and practitioners, combining research on root causes of human rights violations with implementation of projects and policies addressing those grievances.
To this end, we are engaged in four focus areas: Research. Education. Advocacy. Development. (R.E.A.D.), all with a view to bridging the gap between academic and practical approaches to human rights, and between problem analysis and implementation of solutions.
On March 16, 2020, Human Rights Research League Chairman Tom Syring is scheduled to give a lecture at the University of Paris 1 (Sorbonne-Pantheon) on 'Cross-cutting Issues and Global Challenges of Forced Displacement: The Particular Case of the Democratic Republic of the Congo' ('Questions transversales et defis mondiaux du deplacement force: Le cas particulier de la Republique democratique du Congo'). The talk, which will be held in French, is co-sponsored by the Institut de Recherche en Droit International et Europeen de la Sorbonne (IREDIES) at Sorbonne Law School (University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne) and the Groupe pour l'Etude de la Mondialisation et du Developpement (GEMDEV) at the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne.
