International Human Rights Workshop

The International Human Rights Workshop (IHRW) partners with the Human Rights Center (HRC), under the supervision of the Director of the Sexual Violence Program, Kim Thuy Seelinger. Students conduct legal research to support projects related to sexual and gender-based sexual violence in conflict and migration. Students will have the opportunity to hone their legal research and writing skills and develop knowledge of domestic and international laws.

Time Commitment: IHRW participation requires a full-year commitment (Fall 2019 and Spring 2020). Students typically work on the project an average of five hours per week. In addition, students are required to attend mandatory full-group meetings three times per semester and monthly small group meetings.
