“The UCLA School of Law has received a $20 million gift to launch a new institute that will serve as a national hub for human rights education and advocacy.

The Zoryan Institute and the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (a Zoryan Division), welcome the news that the UCLA School of Law has received a $20 million gift to launch a new institute that will serve as a national hub for human rights education and advocacy.
As our friends and supporters know, the focus of the Zoryan Institute for the past 35 years has been to educate students, scholars and the general public on Human Rights.
Genocide prevention starts with education. We commend ‘The Promise’ and Eric Esrailian for launching The Promise Institute for Human Rights. We share the purpose and values of The Promise Institute to keep the Armenian story part of all stories.
“The Promise” opens in theaters on April 21.
Zoryan’s core concept is to serve the cause of scholarship and public awareness relating to issues of universal human rights, genocide, and diaspora-homeland relations. This is done through the systematic continued efforts of independent scholars and specialists using a comparative and multidisciplinary approach and in accordance with the highest academic standards.
