The Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP) at Columbia University

HRAP is designed to prepare proven human rights leaders from the GlobalSouth and marginalized communities in the U.S. to participate in national and international policy debates on globalization by buildingtheir skills, knowledge, and contacts. The Program features a four-monthresidency at Columbia University in New York City with a structured curriculum of advocacy, networking, skills-building, and academiccoursework.
Since 2004, HRAP has concentrated its support on individuals andorganizations that address issues broadly related to globalization. The four-month intensive capacity building program based at ColumbiaUniversity in New York focuses on the following key issue areas:
  • Environmental injustice
  • Labor rights violations
  • Abuses by multinational corporations
  • Ramifications of resource extraction
  • Public health crises
  • Unsustainable development
  • Intolerance, xenophobia, and social exclusion related to globalization

Special attention is given to the above issues and their intersection with gender, race, ethnicity, sexual identity, and/or other sources ofmarginalization.

CSHR makes every effort to provide full fellowships to cover program costs as well as travel and living expenses for selected Advocates each year. CSHR staff will work with interested candidates who have been waitlisted for the Program to identify potential funding sources in cases where CSHR does not yet have the resources to provide a full fellowship.

HRAP's current focus has emerged in recent years as a response to thenegative effects of globalization on those with the least access to decision-making processes. Given their physical and symbolic distancefrom centers of power, grassroots leaders are typically unable to lobbyfor equitable outcomes from global policymakers.

The design of HRAP is intended to help level the playing field for those lacking the access and relevant skills or knowledge to lobby effectivelyfor their causes. The Program provides advanced training, support, andnetworking opportunities to respected human rights leaders. The focus is both on strengthening the skills of the individual Advocates andproviding tools to build sustainable organizations that advocate fordisadvantaged peoples.

Participants are selected on the basis of their previous work experience on human rights and globalization, commitment to the human rights field,and demonstrated ability to complete graduate-level studies. Advocatesmust originate from and reside in either the Global South or the United States. Fluency in English is required. Advocates must secureinstitutional endorsement from their organizations for theirparticipation in the Program and must commit to returning to thatorganization upon completion of the Program.
