About Us

 

MISSION

Center On Human Rights Education (COHRE) contributes to universal recognition of all human rights with an emphasis on economic, social and cultural rights through research and education.

 

VISION

We envision a world where universal human rights are prioritized and protected.

 

HISTORY

The Center on Rights Development (CORD) was established at the University of Denver in 1988 as part of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies. The organization underwent a rebranding project in 2016 and relaunched as the Center on Human Rights Education (COHRE). 
 
COHRE contributes to universal recognition of all human rights with an emphasis on economic, social, and cultural rights through research and education. We cultivate a deeper understanding of these issues implementation by the United Nations International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) through events and education, as well as global and local partnership.

 

With a dedicated staff, COHRE continues to successfully participate in community and campus outreach by holding educational events focusing on the rights protected under ICESCR. COHRE hosts an annual symposium focusing on a particular theme relevant to human rights. Past themes have included the Right to Education, the Right to Water, and so on. For more information about symposium, visit our Events page.
