Following on from our highly successful second year, the Human Rights Centre will offer its five day summer school in Human Rights Research Methods from 27 June – 1 July 2016. This will be followed by a second week (4- 6 July) of thematic modules on cutting edge issues in human rights including:

  • Human Rights, Big Data and Technology (organised by the Human Rights Centre)
  • Human Rights and Drug Policy (organised by the International Centre on Human Rights and Drug Policy)

We have put together an exciting teaching team of some of the leading Essex and external human rights academics and practitioners, all with extensive experience of researching and working on human rights issues in a wide range of contexts. The summer school is ideal for human rights professionals working in NGOs, government and international organisations; lawyers; academics and postgraduate students.

Full details on the modules, sessions and how to book a place will be available shortly.

We hope to see you at Essex this summer!
