Ph.D. Minor in Human Rights

Offered in conjunction with Indiana University's Center for the Study of Global Change, the Ph.D. minor in human rights emphasizes that the discourse and practice of human rights has international, global, regional, and local components. The minor requires students to explore the implications and intersection of these components through a holistic and multidisciplinary approach. This approach asks students to be aware of how law, cultural values and practice, social and political institutions, national and supranational bodies, and policy interact, integrate, and conflict with one another to create an international human rights regime.
