Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI) becomes entity in its own right

Aug 16, 2022

The Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI), until recently part of Motu Research, has become so successful they are now an entity in their own right.


We wish HRMI well on this next phase of growth & impact & will still see them regularly as they'll continue to work out of our Wellington office.


HRMI was founded by Anne-Marie Brook, K Chad Clay, and Susan Randolph. Brook is an economist and Associate at Motu Research, heading up a small operations team in Wellington. Clay is a political scientist focusing on civil and political human rights, and measurement methodology, based at the University of Georgia (UGA), in the United States, where he is also the director of UGA’s Center for the Study of Global Issues (GLOBIS), which is HRMI’s main US base of operations. Randolph is a development economist specialising in economic and social human rights, and Professor Emerita at the University of Connecticut, US.

Motu Research supporters who would like to keep in contact with HRMI should sign up for their occasional newsletters and can follow HRMI on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
