Student Fellows



Carr Center > Measurement & Human Rights > People


The Measurement & Human Rights Program seeks to create links among academics, students, NGOs, government and the UN, and the media, bridging the traditional divide between practitioners and academics. At the Carr Center, the program relies on dedicated faculty members, research fellows, and students in addition to the core staff. The program also welcomes people from outside the Carr Center at frequent events and conferences.
