Our six research units conduct ground-breaking research. Their collective expertise encompasses issues at the cutting edge of human rights law and their activities have shaped policy and thinking around human rights.
Current research areas include the promotion and protection of human rights in conflict and post-conflict situations, UN treaty body reform, transitional justice, the International Criminal Court, economic, social and cultural rights, human rights, trade and business, forced migration, and the European Convention on Human Rights.
Our units reflect and define Human Rights Law Centre expertise, which is promoted by the centre through short courses and training, publications and student activities. Please explore our unit pages for their expertise, key projects, publications and core staff:
