The Duke Human Rights Initiative
The DHRI brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to promote new understandings of pressing questions about human rights, terror, political violence and the politics of forgiveness, accountability and reconciliation.
Faculty includes Robert Byrd
Director, Rare Book, Manuscript and Special Collections Library
Byrd is instrumental in the effort to bring more human rights-related material to Duke, including personal archives of pivotal human rights figures and the organizational archives of non-governmental groups doing human rights work.
