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.
Conferences & calls
In common with global climate change, the current COVID-19 pandemic is at once a global and a local crisis. It has exposed and exacerbated structural inequalities, disrupted local and global economies, challenged our ability to process and respond to science and scientific uncertainty, and revealed both the power and limitations of the rule of law. This webinar, organized by ASIL on February 16, 2021, from 12 pm - 1 pm (US Eastern Time), seeks to explore the role of international law and organizations in responding to the pandemic and the deep inequalities it has exposed, and the implications of economic responses to climate migration and action.
