Human Rights Law

About us

Our human rights research takes place in the environment of the Human Rights Centre. Based in the School of Law, it is one of the oldest academic human rights centres in the world.

Members of our research cluster have extensive expertise in human rights law at the national, regional and international level, both in research and practice. They hold positions as UN Special Rapporteurs; chairs and members of UN Committees; legal advisers to UK parliamentary Committees; and members of management and advisory boards of NGOs and charities.
