The Archive for Human Rights is part of Duke University’s Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library . Its mission is to identify, collect, and provide access to materials generated by organizations and individuals working within and having significant impact on the field of human rights. Among its collections are the institutional papers of the The International Center for Transitional Justice and the personal papers of Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer, an American who became an human rights defender in Argentina during the Dirty War. Working in close partnership with the Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute, the Archive is a key component of Duke University’s commitment to social justice, social equality, and social responsibility.
With the Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute and the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), whose papers are at Duke, the Archives also supports the WOLA-Duke Book Award for Human Rights in Latin America
