Each year during spring break, the University of Oregon sends a small group of undergraduates and graduate students (CHC, CRES & Law students only) to the University of Oxford for a weeklong workshop on global justice and human rights.
The students work with Cheney Ryan and Hugo Slim. Ryan and Slim are both Senior Fellows of The Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict (ELAC). Ryan works part of the year as an emeritus professor in the Conflict and Dispute Resolution Program at the UO School of Law; the rest of his time is spent at Oxford. Slim is one of Oxford’s leading authorities on the area of human rights, and is Head of Policy for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland.
The program is made possible due to the generous financial support from Steve Raymund, David Stern, and Laura and Bob Sillerman, and the administrative support of Dean David Frank of the University of Oregon Clark Honors College and Caroline Massey of Merton College, Oxford.
