Center for Human Rights and Genocide Studies
The University of North Dakota (UND) Center for Human Rights and Genocide Studies (CHARGES) has its origins in projects dedicated to preserving and making available to the public archives related to massive human rights violations.
CHARGES has been working as a multidisciplinary program to facilitate research and teaching across disciplines at UND. In particular, CHARGES has worked to increase human rights course offerings on campus and raise awareness regarding existing courses.
Currently, CHARGES is in the process creating a special cross-disciplinary course for UND's Honor's Program. The course will be on a general human rights theme that will be team-taught by CHARGES faculty members from departments such as English, Law, Modern & Classical Languages and Literature, and Political Science.
