The deadline to apply for the virtual 2022 Genocide Human Rights University Program (GHRUP) is fast approaching, on May 31, 2022! 

The Genocide and Human Rights University Program (GHRUP) is an annual, intensive, graduate-level summer course that explores fundamental issues relating to gross violations of human rights and the prevention of genocide. Taught by leading experts over a 2-week period, this course is comparative and interdisciplinary in nature, and incorporates genocide theory, history, sociology, political science, anthropology and international law.

The GHRUP provides participants with the intellectual framework to understand the numerous, complex, and often emotional issues related to genocide. An examination of several major cases of genocide provides the foundation for comparative analysis, while the exploration of specific case studies and conceptual themes vary from year to year. This year, four new units have been added to the program: Continuum of Violence: Ukraine Past and Present, The Uyghurs, Language and Lenses of Destruction: Attrition, Disposable Peoples, and Necropolitics, and Looking Forward at Genocide and Mass Atrocity: Environment, Artificial Intelligence, and Non-Conventional Warfare. Students join from all over the world to participate in this structured forum to explore universal questions relating to human rights and their gross violations. 

The International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (A Division of the Zoryan Institute) will be hosting this program virtually over Zoom from August 1-12, 2022. To learn more about the 2022 program, please visit, and to apply, please visit
