Together we’re solving the world's biggest challenges.

We’re protecting human rights from every angle

Hear from our researchers

The challenge of protecting human rights is global and local—and urgent.

It means finding justice for thousands who went missing in a drug war. It means restoring human dignity to millions after a 50-year civil war. It means solving problems of inequality that led to a tragic shooting in a local neighborhood.

At the University of Minnesota, we’re taking on today’s urgent human rights challenges and preparing tomorrow’s advocates and leaders.
