Humanity in Action Fellowship

Humanity in Action

Humanity in Action's programs concern human rights activities generally, but they focus specifically on the relationship between majority and minority populations in the countries where the programs take place (currently Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, and the US). The five-week programs address a carefully selected range of subjects intended to provide the Fellows analytical and intercultural skills and perspectives that will aid in their work on a broad range of human rights issues in the future.
