Peru: Exploring Human Rights in Practice Study Abroad Info Session

December 5, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Explore the Amazon while engaged in a grassroots approach to human rights in this three-week study abroad program in Peru. Students will have the opportunity to connect with faculty and students in the Department of Law at Catolica University in Lima as well as Peace and Hope International, to learn about the current enviro/economic challenges Peruvians face and to support projects to help to advance work by partner organizations. Students will examine the role of international advocates and volunteers and potential risks associated with volun-tourism while supporting those working in the field to advance human rights —  learning first-hand how projects are designed and implemented and how marginalized groups of peoples experience discrimination and exercise agency in asserting and defending their rights.
