About us

The Human Rights Consortium hosted by the School of Advanced Study has been established to facilitate and promote research in human rights in the UK and internationally.  We do this by:

  • organising and supporting academic, policy and practice-oriented human rights events
  • disseminating research on human rights
  • fostering national and international networks of human rights academics
  • hosting visiting fellows working in human rights
  • contributing to the training of research students working on human rights
  • enhancing the teaching and learning environment for graduate students
  • raising funds in support of human rights research and research support

The Human Rights Consortium is closely associated with the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, with which it delivers the UK’s longest-running interdisciplinary practice-based MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights.
