The collaboration between the Measurement and Human Rights (MHR) Program at Carr Center for Human
Rights Policy - Harvard Kennedy School and EGAP/Campus State of Mexico at Tec de Monterrey focuses on
developing evidence based human rights policies addressing the challenge of how we can measure
progress, impact and success in promoting human rights.
The workshop will help government and civil society executives think conceptually about
evidence based policy on human rights. Through a combination of presentations, case studies,
and group discussions, participants will examine the rationale behind measurements and gain
valuable insight into its critical aspects.
Executive level management from government (local and federal) and civil society organizations,
as well as academics and international organizations working in the area of human rights and policy making.
Promote actions towards the implementation of evidence based policies in the area of human rights
Support a closer collaboration among policy makers, civil society and academia exploring
complementarities and synergies
Participants will build skills through group interaction in case study discussions, simulations,
and team exercises. The personal relationships forged during these highly interactive programs
enable lifelong professional opportunities and friendships.
