Human Rights Law Centre

HRLC joined by visiting scholar

Each year, the Human Rights Law Centre hosts a number of academics and graduate students from other universities as Visiting Scholars. Scholars are provided with a base and facilities to conduct their own human rights research. This year, we are delighted to be joined by Dr Ahmed Almutawa, a police officer and a member of academic staff at the Royal Academy of Police, Kingdom of Bahrain. In 2020, he was awarded a PhD from the University of Leeds for a thesis that examined the legitimacy of counterterrorist financing in Bahrain. Since then, he has worked on developing a research interest in international human rights law.

His current research is focused on the regional protection of human rights. With Professor Konstantinos Magliveras, he is co-editing a book for Asser Press (Springer) that uses legitimacy as the theme for a comparative analysis of the institutional aspects of regional human rights systems. He is also working on a proposal for a book that will consider the role and future of regional human rights protection. During his time at the HRLC, he will be working on a paper that considers some of the lessons for regional human rights protection that may be learned from the experiences of the European Court of Human Rights.
