Research themes

The Human Rights Consortium (HRC) has developed a strong track-record in the organisation and support of academic, policy and practice-oriented activities on human rights. The HRC's activities fall under four key themes:

  • Defending and Securing Human Rights
  • Environmental Justice 
  • Minorities and Indigenous People's Rights and Non-discrimination
  • Refugee Law Initiative 

Research projects at the Human Rights Consortium are led by academic researchers who also teach on the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights, and offer research degree supervision. Students at both levels who have an interest in these areas are paritcularly encouraged to apply to study with the Human Rights Consortium.
