Human Rights in Action: Student Activism, Methods, and Strategies

UMN students in the Master of Human Rights program are often asked, “What exactly are you studying?” and “What will you do with your degree?” For answers, just look at what students and alumni are doing right now. They are actively promoting racial justice, equality, and human rights in the Twin Cities and beyond, using methods they honed in their studies. From documentation, to policy analysis, to quantitative and qualitative research, to protest, to direct support to communities, they are using their skills to champion human rights at this crucial time.

As the final program in the Humphrey School's Summer Seminar Series, join us for a conversation with Master of Human Rights alumni and students about their human rights strategies, tools, and action.
