Law Human rights

Human rights standards have become relevant to many spheres of law and policy, nationally and internationally. The expanding impact of human rights law on society is reflected in the breadth of our research interests. These include:

  • socio-economic rights in the contexts of immigration and asylum
  • multinational corporations
  • child care and protection in the context of the right to respect for private and family life
  • human rights dimensions of climate change

The full range of our expertise, and news of recent staff research, can be found on the webpages for our human rights-dedicated research centre, the Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law
