This project is in collaboration with the International Network for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
Globally, countries are facing social, political, economic and environmental crises intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic. For low- and middle-income countries, these crises have been compounded by debt burdens, constraining governments’ ability to respond to the immediate and essential needs of their people. This phenomenon has heightened inequality and imperilled human rights.
The Human Rights Centre Clinic will work with ESCR-Net to support various research, advocacy and campaigning initiatives in relation to the impact of the neoliberal economic model on public debt, the responsibilities of international financial institutions, and the relationship between debt justice and the enjoyment of economic, social, cultural and environmental rights. The project will contribute to promoting accountability for corporate capture and highlight corporate impact and responsibilities in relation to human rights and debt.
This exciting research project is open to postgraduate human rights students as part of the Human Rights Centre Clinic Module (HU902). If you want to join the module-based projects of the Human Rights Centre Clinic in 2022-23, please submit your application by Monday 10 October at 5pm to email@example.com.
The application should include two attachments:
Interviews will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 12 October (afternoon), Thursday 13 October (all day) and Friday 14 October (morning). You would be allocated a time slot for a short conversation with the HRC Clinic Director and one of the Co-Deputy Directors.
We will communicate the decision on Monday 17 October, and we expect to have the teams in place that week itself.
