Duke’s new clinic will offer students the opportunity to engage in four types of human rights projects: applying a human rights framework to domestic issues; advocating for human rights in foreign countries where human rights standards are nascent or absent; engaging with international institutions to advance human rights protections; and analyzing the human rights implications of U.S. foreign policy, including counter-terrorism initiatives that cause collateral gender-based harm.  The clinic will officially launch at the beginning of the spring 2014 term.

Congratulations!
