Hafa Adai and Welcome!
The Guam Human Rights Initiative is a collaborative research nonprofit seeking to advance human rights on Guam and throughout the Pacific through meaningful and impactful research efforts.
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.
Our 4 Pillars
Connecting the Community
Research: We undertake expert-led, academically rigorous research into timely, sensitive human rights issues at local and regional scales.
Public Policy: We provide data and recommendations to support public policy decisions.
Academia: We train graduate-level students in research and academic writing in support of the academic research in the Pacific
Stakeholder training: We offer specialized training for stakeholders ranging from private businesses to NGOs to law enforcement.
