The Center provides modest support — travel assistance and seed money to initiate collaborative research — for graduate student research on human rights and democracy.  The CHRD promotes study abroad programs and other curricular innovations that connect students with the study of human rights across the globe.  Such study abroad programs include three-week sessions (“Race, Religion, and Conflict in Northern Ireland” and “Human Rights in Argentina”) as well as a full semester program in Strasbourg, France on “Human Rights and Democracy in Europe”.
