AAA Committee for Human Rights

Resources for Research, Instruction and Networking

A primary goal of CfHR is to encourage research and education on all aspects of human rights, from conceptual to applied. The Committee encourages colleagues to think, write and conduct research that touches on all areas of human rights.  Teaching courses related to this field in a university setting will also further the promotion of human rights awareness among students.  Finally, networking with other anthropologists who work on human rights is a vital aspect of this work. To assist our colleagues in achieving these goals, the Committee has compiled background information and a resource list, bibliographies and various course syllabi pertaining to human rights issues, a directory of scholars who work on human rights issues and . Additional contributions of bibliographies, resources, and syllabi are welcome.  To add your name to the directory of scholars, contact
