- Development/Training/Networking: The Islam and Human Rights Fellowship Program promotes catalysts for social change by providing extensive training to its participants. Advocates have the unique opportunity to participate in specialty courses, utilize multiple libraries at Emory University, meet with Human Rights experts, and present public lectures on their work. While conducting independent research, fellows make professional contacts and exchange dialogue with other scholars that are completing work in similar disciplines. Emory faculty members are also available for mentorship and consultation. Each Fellow describes the manner in which they are utilizing the resources made available by the Program and Emory University. Fellows also specify initiatives to implement their research in relevant local, national, regional, and global contexts, and the value of their research for these contexts.
