Essex Human Rights Summer School 2019

What to expect:

This summer school will be taught by a combination of Essex and external human rights academics and practitioners. Participants will learn how to design research projects and carry them out both in a headquarters environment or while working in the field. They will learn about the range of tools and methodologies for human rights research (whether academic or practical) and when, why and how to employ particular research methods in specific research contexts.

Course content:

All sessions will focus on research design, methodology and impact and will examine relevant examples and case studies. As an interactive summer school, it will afford participants many opportunities to apply the theory they have learned, including through dedicated sessions in which participants will be given a problem ahead of the session and asked to prepare the research questions, methodology and impact strategy.

Eligibility and applying:

This is an ideal course for postgraduate students, academics, lawyers and human rights professionals working in NGOs, government and international organisations.
