Students are an integral part of IHR’s mission and success. You can make a difference in human rights — by raising awareness of human rights violations, by speaking out or organizing in a case of injustice, or by educating yourself on the content of human rights, human rights activism, or human rights institutions.

We encourage you to actively engage with human rights and the IHR by taking a class on human rights, by attending our events and conferences, and joining our student organization or our team. Make sure to follow us on social media!
