Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research


Director: Dr Charlotte Skeet

The Law School's Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research was launched in August 2015. The core aim of the Centre is to foster a vibrant research culture for human rights researchers within the Sussex Law School. Our work has a global as well as national focus and we adopt a range of different approaches to human rights research (e.g. doctrinal, critical, theoretical, practical and inter-disciplinary).

To that end, the Centre has adopted the following objectives:

1. To provide a focus for developing new research activity, supporting and encouraging a programme of research and publications in and related to human rights law;
2. To build the capacity and development of individual and collaborative research projects and bids; 
3. To feed into human rights debates and collaborate with relevant organisations, locally, nationally and internationally; 
4. To contribute to the University’s commitment to inter-disciplinarity and
5. To attract high-quality postgraduate students to our LLM and PhD programmes.

For more information about the Centre and its future events, please contact Dr Charlotte Skeet.
