We hope that the ideas generated and debated during Symposium conversations will contribute to the health of the human rights field and provide new tools for people to collaborate, defend and advance human rights. 

There are four topics at the heart of our project:

  1. The Language of Rights
  2. Organizational Health
  3. Cultures of Respect
  4. Solidarity

Each page offers a brief introduction into the viewpoints shared on these topics thus far, as well as associated readings, podcasts or webinars that may be pursued for further discussion and self-knowledge.

Have something interesting to share on the topics above? Explore our upcoming events in order to join the conversation, or drop us a line at We’d love to hear from you.
