Human Rights Research & Documentation


Human Rights Research Documentation Center (HURIC) combines the need for research and fact-finding opportunities which is manifested through research and Documentation.

We partner with organizations globally to conduct fact-finding and document gaps in needs or in the implementation of Human Rights. We report to the United Nations and regional mechanisms on human rights violations. We research local, national, and international laws and jurisprudence and their impact on human rights.

To volunteer, please contact our Research and Documentation Department  to be part of the process and be able to help.

HURIC supports the community of teachers, students, researchers, and law and social justice advocates working in the multidisciplinary sphere of human rights. HURIC pursues three programmatic directions:  building research collections, supporting and engaging in human rights education efforts, and developing events and collaborations related to human rights documentation and research.

We are working towards becoming the official repository for the archives of major human rights organizations such as Amnesty International USA, the Committee of Concerned Scientists,  Human Rights First, and Human Rights Watch.
