Human Rights in Transit

Human Rights in Transit

The Humanities & Arts discovery theme, Human Rights in Transit, will create a dynamic knowledge hub to grapple with the complex and multidisciplinary questions raised by the fact that human rights, the human and human environments are in transit. The knowledge hub, a metaphorical location as well as a method of transmission driven by collaboration, research, teaching and community relationships, will show that knowledge — as well as human rights — is “in transit.”
