MHR Project Areas

The Measurement & Human Rights Program at the Harvard Kennedy School's Carr Center for Human Rights Policy seeks to bring evidence-based policy to human rights work. The program aims to frame the discussion on the role of systematic assessment techniques in human rights work by addressing some of the most basic and yet most difficult questions in the field:

  • Is it possible to measure the scope of the problems human rights organizations work to solve?
  • How can we track the impact of human rights efforts?

Our constituents in this project are the people near and far who can not enjoy their human rights fully. We hope this work will contribute to the development of more systemic, high leverage solutions.
