The Global Human Rights Clinic works for the promotion of global justice. The Clinic uses international human rights laws and norms as well as other substantive law and strategies to draw attention to human rights violations, develop practical solutions, and promote accountability on the part of state and non-state actors. In collaboration with partners, the GHR Clinic designs and implements projects that advance human rights through adjudication in domestic and international fora and other forms of advocacy including fact-finding and documentation, research, legislation and policy development, and public awareness raising.
