Civic Diplomacy and Human Rights Project

Civic Diplomacy and Human Rights Project

In the past, global problems, ranging from the extremes of mass violence to chronic interstate disputes to everyday stereotypes and caricatures, have been driven by misunderstanding. In accordance with Rutgers’ "Jersey Roots, Global Reach" initiative, the Global Engagement Program is dedicating to overcoming such misunderstandings by promoting dialogue, civic diplomacy, and cultural exchanges. To this end, the program strives to help open conversations across border by organizing peace-building delegations, sponsoring student and faculty exchanges, and organizing related events and forums.
