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 brought scholars or practitioners critically engaged with these issues to spend 1-2 weeks in residence at UT as a Visiting Professor/Practitioner (VPP). Though the project has ended and we no longer have a formal program, we are still interested in partnering with individuals who are interested and meet this criteria. For more information or to make a recommendation, please contact carolinehahn@austin.utexas.edu.
