Human Rights Partners
The Center for International & Comparative Law (CICL) and the International Human Rights Clinic frequently partner with other human rights institutions at Duke to broaden the opportunities for research, scholarship, and advocacy on human rights.
In particular, CICL and the Clinic partner with:
The Kenan Institute for Ethics (KIE) and The Duke Human Rights Center at KIE
KIE is an interdisciplinary “think and do” tank committed to building partnerships and institutional collaborations that address ethical challenges of public concern within and across communities locally and globally. The Duke Human Rights Center at KIE promotes faculty-led collaborations that both transcend traditional departmental boundaries and bridge the often separate spheres of research, advocacy and policy in international human rights, directly engaging graduate undergraduate and professional students in scholarship and practice.
The Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute
The center, which brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and students to promote new understandings about human rights, with special emphasis on issues of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, income inequality and the environment.
Student groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, Human Rights Law Society, International Law Society, Muslim Law Students Association, and OutLaw, as well as the student-edited Duke Journal of Comparative & International Law, offer invaluable opportunities for students to learn more about human rights, including by organizing human rights events or through work on specific projects.
