Intellectual framework

These clusters will engage each other through a common intellectual framework which will include a special focus on four domains of human rights policy and practice. This framework will enable the different clusters to engage in a deep cross-regional and interdisciplinary dialogue:

  • advocacy and mobilization
  • policy and social analysis
  • Law and implementation
  • accountability and memory
