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.

We welcome papers from many (and multiple) disciplines including Sociology, Criminology, Anthropology, International Relations, Law, Environmental Justice, Politics, Migration Studies, Philosophy, Economics, Peace and Conflict Studies, Development Studies, History and the study of social movements.

The conference is co-convened by the Human Rights Consortium, University of London, the Human Rights Centre, University of Essex and the Glasgow Human Rights Network, University of Glasgow.  The conference venue will be Senate House, University of London, London, UK or in the close vicinity of Bloomsbury, London.   Presenters will present their research in panels to be chaired by senior academics who will also serve as discussants.
