Human Rights Advocacy Programme
Application Deadline: 27 September 2006
As part of the Center for the Study of Human Rights’ mission, the Human Rights Advocates Programme (HRAP) brings human rights leaders from the Global South and marginalised communities in the U.S. to Columbia University to engage national and international policymakers on impacts of the global economy on their communities. In order to advocate more effectively, HRAP builds crucial skills for strategic planning, fundraising, utilising the press and media, and building sustainable organisations. During their residency, the Advocates are given numerous opportunities to engage NGOs, corporations, governments, foundations, the United Nations, and international financial institutions.
