  • Each year, the Stanford Human Rights Center awards one fellowship for post-graduate work at a supranational human rights body whose focus, engagement and activities are in the Global South.  The aim of these fellowships is to provide aspiring human rights practitioners with direct experience in human rights advocacy in order to better prepare them to pursue a life-long engagement in human rights work.  For fellowship opportunities, click here.

  • Under the supervision of the Director of the Center and Inter-American Commission Member, Prof. James L. Cavallaro, the Fellow will carry out on-site research, including prison visits and interviews with stakeholders. She/he will draft reports and contribute to the development of a far-reaching compilation of best practices in the areas of criminal justice reform, focusing on reduction of pre-trial detention, and prison reform in the Americas.
