GHRI is committed to advancing human rights in Guam and the region through diligent, comprehensive research.
What We Do
We unite grassroots organizations, public and private institutions, and academic rigor to produce research and policy recommendations. We are working to empower local research scholars through support of self-directed research projects and create opportunities for mutual growth.
Our Unique Approach
Reinforcing our Commitment
We implement a 4-part model intended to provide key research and fill gaps in existing data. To do so, we employ rigorous academic research designed to improve stakeholder relationships and promote collaborative progress.
Our initiative provides a model where the people of Guam and the Pacific can ensure their voices are at the forefront in the data presented to key stakeholders and policy makers.
