Forgotten Crises: Issues and Responses
During the academic year 2017-2018, the Center for International Human Rights (CIHR) will focus on human rights crises that are commonly overlooked. In an effort to raise public awareness to protracted crises that have not received enough attention and a proper response, CIHR will shed light on situations both here and abroad. We will critically examine the role of state actors and of intergovernmental, as well as non-governmental, organizations  in these crises and the way in which they have attempted to address the challenges posed by them. Particular attention will be given to (1) governance deficits and non-traditional security threats and challenges as contributing factors to these crises and (2) an understanding of the reasons for their relegation to the periphery of responsive action.
