Human Rights and Sustainability

Human rights discourse has long been characterized by academic compartmentalization. Since 2020, the HRRC has been promoting interdisciplinary collaboration between high-level human rights researchers in the State of Connecticut (US) and the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg (Germany). The research resulting from this international network's collaboration covers such diverse topics as artificial intelligence; biotechnology; democratic institutions in the face of authoritarianism; conflict management; human rights education in the age of social media; human rights, geopolitics, and global society; media and public discourse analysis; migration, including labor migration and forced migration; philosophical foundations of human rights; social justice and solidarity; and more. This series highlights some of the HRRC network's versatile work.
