Carr Center for Human Rights Policy Fellows Program
The Carr Center is a research, teaching, and training institution at
Harvard's Kennedy School of Government that critically examines the
policies and actions of governments, international organizations,
nongovernmental organizations, and other actors that affect the
realization of human rights around the world.

consolidation in a practitioner career. Fellows are provided with office space, computers with LAN and Internet connections, and access to Harvard University libraries and other facilities.

While the Center welcomes project proposals on any human rights-related topic, we have a particular interest in: the use of force and human rights, building domestic constituencies for human rights at home and abroad, genocide prevention, the global HIV/AIDS crisis, gender and security, corporate social responsibility, and capacity development among human rights non-governmental organizations.
