Centre for the Study of Human Rights Law About us

 

Word from the Director, Dr Elaine Webster

Welcome to our hub for all things human rights at the Law School. Human rights standards have become relevant to so many spheres of law and policy, nationally and internationally and the expanding impact of human rights law on society is reflected in the breadth of our research interests within the School. These range from socio-economic rights in the contexts of immigration and asylum and also multinational corporations, to child care and protection in the context of the right to respect for private and family life, to human rights dimensions of climate change. See our research page for more details and please feel free to get in touch.
