Come hear about the human rights research undertaken by your classmates over Spring Break in India, as the students share their experiences and findings from the first inaugural trip.  Students went to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, in the North of India near Pakistan, to look into issues with the long-term displacement of the Kashmiri Pandits (a Hindu Brahmin sect from the Kashmir valley).  Learn how the students compared their theoretical knowledge of internally displaced persons and international migration policy, with hands-on experience visiting migrant camps. See colorful pictures from India.  Get ideas for next year's trip!
