Professor Martha Davis Named a Fellow of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy


11.17.22 —Professor Martha Davis, an internationally recognized expert on human rights, has been appointed as a 2022-2023 fellow of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy. The hub of the Harvard Kennedy School’s research, teaching and training in the human rights domain, the Carr Center embraces a dual mission: to educate students and the next generation of leaders from around the world in human rights policy and practice and to convene and provide policy-relevant knowledge to international organizations, governments, policymakers and businesses.

“I’m looking forward to an exciting year of making new connections and learning more about human rights work worldwide, while building on the Carr Center’s history of work on the human right to water,” said Davis, a faculty co-director for Northeastern Law’s Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy as well as its NuLawLab.

Davis has written widely on human rights, women’s rights and social justice issues. Her most recent books include Covid-19 and Human Rights (Routledge, 2021) (co-editor) and Research Handbook on Poverty and Human Rights (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2021) (co-editor).
