Quantitative analyses have become critical tools in human rights data analysis. They can estimate the magnitude and location and timing of violations, and they can measure the effect international efforts for mitigation. But few quantitative scientists study human rights issues. The purpose of this conference is to review what has been done at the intersection of rights and mathematical modeling, identify technical and political challenges, and develop plans for growing the cadre who work in this field.
This conference is hosted by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics. Support for this conference comes in part from Center for Human Rights Science at Carnegie Mellon.
