The Binghamton University Human Rights Institute (HRI) advances research, teaching and community engagement in human rights. We bring a transdisciplinary human rights perspective to important social problems and contribute to evidence-based policymaking as well as critical discourses in human rights. Drawing upon Binghamton University's research excellence and New York state's rich history advocating and advancing human rights, the HRI develops initiatives with rights-based perspectives to impact public policy in New York state, the United States and internationally. We welcome new affiliates.
