The Carr Center and PKSOI

The MARO Project is a collaborative partnership of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and the Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute at the US Army War College.

The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy
Harvard Kennedy School
The Carr Center was founded in 1999 at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, through a gift from Kennedy School alumnus Greg Carr. The mission of the Carr Center, like the Kennedy School, is to train future leaders for careers in public service and to apply first-class research to the solution of public policy problems. The Carr Center's research, teaching and writing are guided by a commitment to make human rights principles central to the formulation of good public policy in United States and throughout the world.

The Carr Center seeks to lead public policy debate, to train human rights leaders and to partner with human rights organizations to help them respond to current and future challenges. The Carr Center also recognizes that the solutions to such problems must involve not only human rights actors, but governments, corporations, the military and others not traditionally conceived of as a part "human rights" efforts. Thus, it seeks to expand the reach and relevance of human rights considerations to all who influence their outcomes.
