Pathways of Change program publishes interviews with practitioners

PathwaysofChange GraphicThis year, the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics piloted a new program providing undergraduates with real world experience in business and human rights. Pathways of Change selected six students (one honorary) from a diverse range of applicants. The program provided stipends and internship placements with partner organizations Foley Hoag (a law firm in DC with a Corporate Social Responsibility program), Accountability Counsel (an NGO in San Francisco), Corporate Accountability International (an NGO in Boston), and Praxis Institute for Participatory Practices, an NGO in Delhi, India.

The students wrote weekly reflections on their work as they explored issues at the center of affecting change in corporate human rights practices as well as conducted interviews with practitioners that have been compiled into Pathways Profiles, offering insights into how to begin a career in business and human rights through multiple options.
