The International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law (IHRP)

The IHRP was established to conduct research and advocacy on critical human rights issues and provide law students with opportunities to develop their capacity to promote and protect international human rights. Its flagship program is the International Student Fellowships, which allows 15-20 law students each year to undertake research or gain practical experience in human rights advocacy, activism, research or education abroad over the course of the summer. Through this program, students have worked in over 30 different countries, including with the International Criminal Court in The Hague, UNHCR, The Equality Effect, Human Rights Watch, PEN International, and the International Organization for Migration. The Foundation is supporting two of these fellowships.
