Rights Work is dedicated to serving the community by providing a forum for open, frank and grounded discussions of ideas, programs, data, laws, and policies that, to date, have not been subjected to critical analysis or commentary. It is a space for respectful discussions between and among people who otherwise might not have the opportunity to engage in a dialogue about issues that are critical to their work.
The hoped-for outcome of the discussions and debates is to build a core of knowledge from a variety of perspectives that is solidly grounded on reliable evidence and within a human rights framework. This knowledge – it is hoped – will lead to innovation at all levels and more efficient, effective, rights-protective programs, responses and outcomes.
