The Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation has been fortunate to be able to welcome so many wonderful scholars, both students and professors every summer.  Our first session was held in 2009 with 17 students and 5 internationals. Since then our program has grown to up to 30 students, with international students from around the world. We continue to strive to meet our goals of training our students for the real work of human rights and to also foster growth, exchange, and friendships between cultures.
