Professor Susan Ross
J.D. Clinic 520 | 10 credit hours
The general mission of the IWHRC is to promote and advance women's human rights throughout the world. Specifically, the IWHRC is pursuing this goal through several different programs. First, the IWHRC clinical program provides Georgetown law students the opportunity to work with United Nations organizations and nongovernmental organizations in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East on research for United Nations reports, test cases advancing women's rights, and on proposed national legislation to further women's human rights. Second, the IWHRC has a research and scholarship program that aims to further the publication of research that advances or promotes women's human rights. Third, the IWHRC has an education program that seeks to advance awareness and understanding of international women's human rights issues by bringing these issues to the public forum.
