The Shattuck Center for Human Rights

The center is named for John Shattuck, Rector and President of CEU from 2009 to 2016. John's career in diplomacy and the promotion of peace and human rights took him to some of the world's most troubled places. As Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, he played a vital role in the Dayton peace process that ended the war in Bosnia and in helping Rwanda recover from its genocide. He was central to the emergence of international justice institutions to try those accused of crimes against humanity.
