Our Mission

The Carr Center's mission is to realize global justice through theory, policy, and practice. The Center brings together theorists, policy makers, and practitioners in a vital mission:  to enhance global justice.  We accomplish this though research, teaching, training, and convenings focused on a more strategic and outcome-oriented human rights practice.

Rethinking human rights has never been more critical.  The threats to life and livelihood that millions face – war, mass atrocities, genocide, lawlessness, environmental disaster, human trafficking, and historic levels of income inequality—all cross borders. At the same time, human rights law, institutions and movements are succeeding in improving human rights and global justice around the world.
