The Human Rights Consortium (HRC) promotes and facilitates human rights research in the UK and internationally. It organises and supports academic, policy and practice-orientated activities on human rights, principally under three key themes:

  • Understanding and Securing Human Rights
  • Environmental Justice
  • Minority and Indigenous Peoples' Rights

The HRC and the Institute of Commonwealth Studies work collaboratively to deliver the cutting-edge teaching and practice-based training within two post-graduate programmes: the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights, offered on campus; and the MA in Human Rights, offered by distance learning.

The HRC brings together multidisciplinary expertise to provide a national and international collaborative centre for academic and policy work in human rights.
