What does it mean to bring research results to communities? How to effectively convey research to policy-makers? How can community members, researchers, and government officials participate meaningfully in culture and rights work? These are some of the questions Culture and Rights Project has been trying to address. Our project members conducted several research projects that encouraged researchers, informants, and other stakeholders to become more engaged. This seminar featured four Culture and Rights research teams and their resource persons who discussed the limits of research and policy-making.
