Projects can be implemented in partnership with community-based, non-governmental, inter-governmental,
and academic organisations to develop more effective ways to promote and support human rights work and to
transfer knowledge. Organisations interested in partnering with the Essex HR Clinic can submit project proposals,
which will be analysed by the Essex HR Clinic Advisory Board. Proposals should
be e-mailed to hrclinic (non Essex users should add @essex.ac.uk to create full
All proposals will be considered on the basis of the criteria listed below:
- Student Benefit - Each project should have a teaching/capacity-building component, combining the teaching
of relevant material with encouraging student discussion of, and active development of strategy concerning, the
cases and activities they are dealing with. As part of this teaching/capacity-building component, the Essex HR Clinic
will guide students and ensure responsibility for the welfare and interests of the right-holder beneficiaries
for whom the ultimate work of the Essex HR Clinic is directed.
- Sustainability - Each project needs to consider the current capacity of the Essex HR Clinic and the availability of
resources both from the Essex HR Clinic and the applicant to develop and implement the project. Sustainability of the
project will also take into account the potential of the project to further develop the Essex HR Clinic network of students,
alumni, academics, and NGOs.
- Impact – The mission, vision, and objectives of the applicant will be considered, as well as the potential
impact of the project on the protection and promotion of human rights.
