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.
We invite to you to join our growing network of more than 100 affiliated faculty members. Through our events, projects, and other activities, our affiliated faculty are able to interact with other members of the human rights community. We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to contribute your unique experience and expertise to the Rapoport Center!
The Rapoport Center is currently soliciting papers for its Working Paper Series (WPS). We encourage submissions from scholars of all disciplines as well as from activists and advocates. At present, we are particularly interested in papers that explore the relationship between labor, inequality, and human rights, in line with the Rapoport Center’s current thematic focus, but are also open to publishing papers on the topic of human rights more generally.
The Rapoport Center sponsors collaborative working groups initiated by our affiliated faculty that research and explore various human rights topics. These groups are comprised of faculty and students from diverse disciplines across campus. We invite you to join a working group and become part of the conversation!
The Rapoport Center has joined with the University of Texas School of Law's Tarlton Law Library to provide visiting research opportunities for scholars who pursue independent research projects related to human rights law and advocacy.
