Local Human Rights NGOs (LHROs) in the Glboal South: Findings from Mumbai, an event hosted by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, will discuss the fundamental role LHROs play in promoting human rights in the developing world. LHROs are key components of the international human rights infrastructure, yet very few studies have focused on these organizations let alone their legitimacy and sustainability. Prof James Ron's research collaborator and Hubert Fellow, Archana Pandya, will shed light on the LHRO community in Mumbai, India. Drawing on data collected in Mumbai between 2010 and 2012, Archana will present findings on how LHROs are perceived by the general population, how they sustain themselves, and what relationships they have with other local actors.
