As part of our effort to support an infrastructure of collaboration between researchers, lawyers and advocates, we believe in the importance for The Civil Rights Project to conduct conferences, briefings and trainings.
Many of our conferences are envisioned to foster debate and draw experts from several distinct areas, commissioned for further research by The Civil Rights Project.
