The Human Rights Law Centre has established an international reputation in providing residential short courses, bespoke training and capacity building programmes and a summer school, covering a breadth of contemporary issues and practices in human rights law and international criminal law at the national, regional and international level. Established in 1997, over 2,000 representatives from governments, judiciary, human rights defenders, NGO and IGO staff, legal professionals, students and academics have taken part in our programmes, which we have delivered in the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.   

Bespoke Training and Capacity Building

 

 

 

 

 

Through our bespoke training activities, we can design and deliver tailormade training and capacity building on relevant issues of human rights law and criminal law to meet the individual needs of our recipient partners. HRLC has a wide range of national and international clients, including judiciary, government representatives, staff of international and non-governmental organizations, General Attorney Offices and UN field missions.   

Chevening Fellowship Programme

 

HRLC hosts the prestigious annual UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Chevening Fellowship programme, Implementing Human Rights Conventions, for senior professionals from around the world. The course provides Fellows with an in-depth understanding of international human rights law standards and systems and their implementation at the national level, through seminars and study visits to relevant key institutions in Geneva and the UK.  

Human Rights Defenders Fellowships

 

From September 2008 to March 2009, HRLC initiated a pilot scheme to host human rights defenders by providing scholarships for participation in the Short Course on International Human Rights Law.

The fellowships aimed to enhance the knowledge and capacities of human rights defenders/at-risk scholars.

Postgraduate students interested in human rights issues are actively encouraged to work with HRLC.
