The UNESCO Chair & Institute of Comparative Human Rights at the University
of Connecticut invites applications for the sixth annual International

   - Expand the knowledge relevant to human rights practice
   - Provide tools and a platform for open debates

   education, the environment, the plight of child soldiers, the use of media,
