Centre for Human Rights Partners HP Image 350x263 - HandshakeThe Centre for Human Rights provides advice, support and membership for the work of other organisations engaging in the protection of human rights around the world.

We partner with other centres in the University, such as the Centre for American Legal Studies, the Centre of Law, Science and Policy and the Social Evaluation and Research Unit, and we have other partners internationally.

These partnerships are formed to identify appropriate bid applications for our work on different aspects of human rights promotion and protection. We will adopt a strategic approach in funding applications and identify appropriate awarding bodies.

If you are interested in partnering with the Centre for Human Rights to develop a project to help promote and protect human rights, please contact Professor Jon Yorke: or Hannah Gorman:
