Understand and investigate the interaction between human rights and law, the economy, society, politics and culture.
We undertake research in this field that is not only interdisciplinary, innovative and rigorous, but also seeks to learn from, and apply to, real-life circumstances. The manner and form in which we teach elements of this theme are also driven by experiential learning and actively promoting awareness of the often complex contexts in which development and human rights issues are to be found.
The field of human rights and development is an emerging and exciting new discipline. It embraces a broad range of global and local issues as reflected in the wealth of experience and expertise of our scholars.
