Professor of Sociology Receives National Science Foundation Grant

Professor of Sociology Brian Gran was featured in The Daily  for receiving a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant for the purpose of researching human rights and the response to COVID-19.

From The Daily:

“The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a Rapid Response Research (RAPID) grant to Case Western Reserve University to examine instances of governments suspending human rights in the name of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project will aim to raise awareness of human rights violations and contribute to the integrity of international agreements and efforts to uphold them.

Led by Brian Gran—a professor in the Department of Sociology at the College of Arts and Sciences—the project will assign scores based on how each emergency measure has, or has not, struck a balance between addressing the pandemic while honoring existing commitments to human right”
