On July 31st students in the Summer Human Rights Program attended a site visit to the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, organized by the Institute for the Study of Human Rights. Graduate, undergraduate, and visiting human rights students met with Kelly L. Razzouk, Human Rights Adviser at the Mission and had the opportunity to ask questions about the United States’ engagement with the UN system on human rights. Ms. Razzouk also discussed priority human rights issue areas and U.S. Permanent Representative Nikki Healey’s diplomatic work.

ISHR’s Human Rights Summer Program, developed in conjunction with the School of Professional Studies, emphasizes the interaction between human rights theory and practice and offers students the opportunity to explore human rights both inside and outside the classroom. Click here to learn more.
