WORKING GROUP MEMBERS

The five thematic working groups, composed of an approximately equal number of participants from Connecticut and Baden-Württemberg, are the conceptual core of the Connecticut/Baden-Württemberg Human Rights Research Consortium (HRRC). The foci of the five groups are key human rights-issues of our time. The working groups schedule independent virtual meetings throughout the academic year (2-3 times per semester) and strive for annual in-person workshops. The scholarly exchange is designed to lead to a variety of collaborative activities and projects, such as publications, conference panels, policy recommendations, or educational activities.

The working language in these groups is English.

The working groups’ objective is scholarly exchange in a supportive, intellectually rich, diverse, and productive atmosphere. Groups provide opportunities to engage with colleagues and approaches from different disciplines, scholarly traditions, and cultural backgrounds.
