Centre for International Law and Human Rights

""The Centre for International Law and Human Rights (CILHR) was established in 2012.

Building on its established reputation of the Law School in the areas of international law and human rights and its strong taught and research postgraduate programmes, CILHR promotes:

  • research and study in international law and human rights;
  • excellence in the teaching of international law and human rights;
  • the development of an environment for the discussion of current ideas and issues in international law and human rights;
  • dissemination of this knowledge to academic and non-academic users (including policy-makers and civil society actors); and
  • support and advance interdisciplinary study in international law and human rights.
