Connecting Research to Practice

Human rights actors can strengthen their legitimacy, strategies and constituencies through critical debate and unique public opinion data. Established in 2013, OpenGlobalRights is a web-based, multilingual platform with a mission to support rights-based NGOs, donors and scholars in developing effective strategies through critical exchanges, opinion research, and customized strategic planning.

The Human Rights Center teamed up with OpenGlobalRights to feature a series of SPHR17 articles and content and grow conversations.
