Carr Center for Human Rights Policy

From Cornell's Insite current awareness
service, 1/17/2005:

"The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy
at Harvard is to make human rights principles central to
the formulation of public policy in the United States and
throughout the world. The Center’s website offers
visitors access to the organization’s articles, case studies,
reports and speeches, as well as bibliographic information
about the Center’s publishedbooks.

The Center’s “Program Areas” cover topics such as “American
Exceptionalism,” “Nongovernmental Organization (NGO)
Effectiveness,” “Social Psychology to Conflict Escalation,”
and “Religion and Human Rights.” These Program Areas
produce working papers, conference reports, meeting
summaries, and other colloquia materials, most of which are
freely available."

The Carr Center website is searchable.
