The Human Rights Institute (HRI) at the University of Connecticut (USA) and the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) at the University of Freiburg in Baden-Württemberg (Germany) serve as administrative and organizational centers of the transatlantic HRRC. Together with the HRRC Steering Committee and assisted by the HRRC Working Groups, they facilitate the conceptual development of the consortium and assist in practical matters, such as the administration of finances, logistical support for workshops and larger conferences, support for grant writing activities, and assistance in public relations work.
