The PBRC publications consist of books as well as working papers made possible by contributive efforts of various intellectuals. Topics of PBRC’s research include contemporary problems of human rights, such as obstacles to a search for peace, cooperative behavior among social groups, and responses to the dual challenges of globalization and localization, all of which would benefit from careful documentary analysis and field work in their respective contexts.
