The Human Rights Consortium co-convenes up to three postgraduate research students' conferences per academic year, bringing together postgraduate students working in the fields of human rights and social justice from across the UK. The conferences provide a forum to stimulate research on contemporary human rights issues and to enable research students to present and discuss their research in progress.

The conferences are co-organised with the Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex and the Glasgow Human Rights Network at the University of Glasgow.
