Human Rights Law Centre


The Human Rights Law Centre conducts leading research in the field of human rights. Working in collaboration with others, HRLC staff and HRLC members offer leading expertise in a variety of research areas relevant to human rights.

HRLC is open to forming research partnerships with individuals and institutions across Europe and beyond, either in response to calls for proposals or on a long-term basis.

Current and recent high-profile research projects include:

  • the design, creation and maintenance of the National Implementing Legislation Database (NILD) of the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court, a tool within the ICC Legal Tools project
  • the design, creation and maintenance of the Cooperation and Judicial Assistance Database (CJAD), an add-on to NILD developed within the Case Matrix Network Knowledge Hub
  • data collection and research services on fundamental rights issues in the UK for the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA)
  • research into the contribution of the EU's internal and external policies to the promotion of human rights worldwide, as part of FRAME - Fostering Human Rights Among European (Internal and External) Policies
