CSIS human rights research is led by the Human Rights Initiative (HRI). Launched in 2014, HRI promotes a proactive global human rights agenda that reinforces democratic values as a central component of a comprehensive foreign policy. It seeks to generate innovative solutions for government, civil society, and the private sector and works to integrate human rights priorities across U.S. foreign policy interests.
In conjunction with the HRI program, CSIS experts from across programs also examine critical issues affecting human rights and human security around the world, as well as opportunities to enhance and broaden support for universal freedoms.
