Professor Dave Richards is one of the two new joint hires of the Human Rights Institute.  Dave’s move from the University of Memphis to a joint appointment with the Political Science Department means that he moves from an ESRG Affiliate to an ESRG faculty member. Not only is Dave a co-originator of the famous CIRI Human Rights Data Project, his diverse interests in human rights include measurement of government economic rights performance (see a sample of his work in “Did You Know?”).
