Visiting Professor/Practitioner Program

As part of our project on studying the use and potential of human rights law and discourse to address economic inequality and its structural causes, the Rapoport Center invites affiliated faculty to submit applications for scholars or practitioners critically engaged with these issues to spend 1-2 weeks in residence at UT as a Visiting Professor/Practitioner (VPP). Ideally, affiliates will apply to bring individuals with whom they and their students would like to have interaction or collaboration.
