International Human Rights Exchange

International Human Rights Exchange (IHRE) is a semester-long program in humanities-based human rights. The program is jointly offered by Bard College and the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in Johannesburg, South Africa. IHRE draws its group of about 90 students from Wits and other universities in Africa, Europe, and the United States. Participation in IHRE includes a significant internship at one of 36 affiliated nongovernmental organizations. It is the world’s only international, full-semester, multidisciplinary program in human rights. Wits plans to introduce an M.A. in human rights modeled on IHRE.
