Building tomorrow's human rights leaders - today
The Summer Institute for High School and College Students is an annual three-day institute that explores genocide and other human rights atrocities. Students from across the country learn from experts and survivors, participate in a mock trial, become engaged with the political process at all levels, and build the skills to become leaders in human rights.
Each summer, the Institute highlights a different genocide or human rights issue and examines it in both international and local contexts. This year's theme is "Women and Genocide." Students will learn about women as victims, perpetrators, rescuers, and prosecutors and important international measures for women's peace and security today.
