Stanford University’s WSD Handa Center for Human Rights and International Justice provides a new generation of leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to protect and promote human rights and dignity for all. The center seeks to create a global resource built around a comprehensive digital collection of the records of human rights and war crime trials from Nuremberg and Tokyo to today. The collection, which will be housed at Stanford Libraries, will also encompass selected records from truth commissions, human rights investigations, and other forms of documentation of gross human rights violations from countries that lack the capacity to preserve and make these records accessible, or from countries where they are at risk.

for the Toward a World Free of Nuclear Weapons project
Former secretary of state George Shultz’s Toward a World Free of Nuclear weapons project has renewed and catalyzed worldwide interest in reestablishing the vision of, and taking steps toward, significant reductions in global nuclear arsenals and their ultimate elimination. In the coming year, Secretary Shultz, renowned physicist Sidney Drell, and former Ambassador James Goodby plan to enlist the support of countries that have nuclear weapons capabilities and those that are potential nuclear weapon states to encourage step-by-step progress toward a reduction in the role of nuclear weapons worldwide. Such steps could include beginning joint aerial monitoring for nuclear weapons testing and developing methods to encourage active participation of the nine nuclear weapons states in accelerating disarmament.
for the Woods Institute Leopold Fellowship
This grant to the Woods Institute at Stanford University would provide communication training to outstanding scientists working in a broad range of environmental fields. The goal is to impart the skills necessary for scientists to translate their knowledge in non-academic settings in a manner that is understandable to decision makers, media, and the public.
