Supporting WSD Handa Center for International Justice and Human Rights at Stanford University
In 2013, the WSD Handa Center was established at Stanford University. The Center succeeds and carries on all the work of the University of California at Berkeley’s War Crimes Studies Center (‘WCSC’), which was established by Professor David Cohen in 2000. Since its founding over a decade ago, the Center has been dedicated to promoting the rule of law, accountability, and human rights around the world, particularly in post-conﬂict societies. We have pursued this mission through work in four general areas:
- Archival Resource Development
- Justice Sector Capacity Building
- Education and Civic Outreach
- Tribunal Monitoring
The WSD Handa Center continues in these core areas of work, while broadening the focus to include programs that combat human traﬃcking as well as projects focused on fostering respect for religious freedom, the rule of law, and conﬂict prevention and reconciliation in post-conﬂict societies.
Through our research and international programs, the WSD Handa Center supports and helps improve the work of domestic courts, international tribunals and human rights commissions around the world. The Center is further committed to increasing awareness and raising the level of discourse around new developments in the ﬁelds of human rights and international law.
To this end, the WDS Handa Center has dedicated itself to becoming a major public resource center for the study of war crimes and human rights trials, where students, scholars, and legal practitioners can take advantage of new technologies to access unique archival resources from World War II through contemporary international criminal trials.
