International Law and Human Rights Research Unit

The International Law and Human Rights Unit provides a forum for research activity in the field of international law/affairs and human rights. The Unit’s members are drawn from across the university and abroad and include scholars from law, politics, international relations and journalism.

The research interests of the Unit cover a broad spectrum including children’s rights and protection, the protection of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, economic and social human rights, comparative human rights and constitutional law, armed conflict, human rights-related gender studies, collective security law and human rights and the environment.

The Unit supports its members in the development and implementation of their research and other scholarly activity, and encourages collaboration within the Unit and in the wider academy both in the UK and abroad.

The activities of the Unit include conducting research, disseminating international law and human rights law, and organising events to discuss the successes and social, political and economic challenges in implementing and reforming such laws.
