This interdisciplinary writing competition on international human rights and gender awards a $1000 prize. It honors the work of Audre Rapoport, who advocated for women in the United States and internationally, particularly on issues of reproductive health.
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.
This innovative concentration provides students with a robust, critical, and comparative foundation in both human rights and constitutional law. It offers students a comprehensive understanding of contemporary human rights practices, including uses of constitutional law, in both domestic and international settings.
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.
