Facts & Figures


Despite studying in disparate locations there is strong bond that we all share through our common belief and passion for the human rights movement. With spaces for civic activism diminishing, now more than ever, we need to maximize our potential and build strong and dynamic connections like in the Global Campus of Human Rights.
