Become a partner

Impactful partnerships

The Clinic receives project proposals from governments, international organisations, UN human rights mechanisms, national human rights institutions and NGOs working in human rights.


Benefits of being a Clinic partner

The HRC Clinic offers pro-bono research to partner organisations. This can be especially useful if a lack of resources does not allow you to conduct a substantial amount of the research.

Furthermore, the University of Essex is a world leader in human rights research. As such, you will be working with the best human rights students as well as a top class body of academics, ensuring high level quality outputs.
