Rebuilding Women’s Rights is a collaboration between the Haiti Lab and the Duke Law School centered on gender-based violence and women’s rights, in the immediate aftermath of the 2010 earthquake and in the longer arc of Haitian legal history. The project took shape through a Lab independent study, which was taught in parallel with a Law School ad hoc course in Fall 2010, and subsequent cross-connections between the Lab and the Haiti Legal Advocacy Project. Founded by Law School students, the HLAP focuses on legal, relief, and development issues in Haiti, with the long term goal of partnering with public interest and pro bono lawyers in Haiti and abroad in ongoing legal efforts in Haiti, and working to improve Haitians’ access to their rights and legal system.
