Human Rights Research Students' Conference

Human Rights Research Students' Conference
9 November 2017, 9.00am - 6.00pm
Conference / Symposium
Senate Room, University of Glasgow


This Postgraduate Research Students’ conference is a conference series aimed at students working within the broad interdisciplinary field of human rights and social justice. The conferences aim to stimulate research on contemporary human rights issues, problems, challenges and policies, and to facilitate the dissemination of such research. We are particularly interested in inviting papers which go beyond disciplinary boundaries to embrace interdisciplinary perspectives on human rights themes.

The themes of the conference include human rights amid the rising nationalism and backlash against multilateralism, human rights in conflict and post-conflict settings, international human rights instruments and social movements, and epistemological, ethical and methodological challenges in conducting human rights research in the global South(s).
