Leif Wenar will present the Donia Human Rights Distinguished Lecture titled "Blood Oil: Tyrants, Violence, and the Rules that Run the World " on September 10, 2018

The Donia Human Rights Center is a forum for intellectual exchange on issues around human rights among scholars, practitioners, students, and the broader public. We aim to promote deeper understanding of human rights issues in the contemporary world and to equip our constituents with the tools to tackle challenging human rights problems around the world. Toward that end, we invite leading practitioners and scholars to share their insight and expertise on human rights gained through their experiences and research. Thanks to the generous support of the International Institute at the University of Michigan and our benefactors, we are able to sponsor various public events each year featuring prominent speakers in the field of human rights and to support educational activities such as exchange programs and curricular development. We invite students, faculty, and the public to join us for a stimulating and inspiring conversation!

Be a victor

We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Donia Human Rights Center needs you—because the world needs Victors.
