Human Rights Forum

Date: 3 November 2011 Time: 5.00 pm

Venue: Bowland North SR 12

The Human Rights Forum is for academic staff and postgraduate students and is established by the Law School at Lancaster University. It seeks to engage all academics interested in issues related to human rights broadly defined. We aim to draw upon the wealth of experience from all academic fields and create an interdisciplinary and interactive forum, in which the participants will determine activities and focus

Have you ever wondered how human rights relate to your work and / or daily life? Are you interested in human rights but have never studied them? Is your research related to human rights issues? If your answer to any of these questions is "Yes," then the Human Rights Forum is meant for you.

The Forum aims at gathering colleagues at the University (and beyond .e.g. those working in non-governmental organisations) who are interested in rights issues from a broad academic and policy perspective.

The purpose of the forum is

  • to share information, knowledge, databases and publications
  • to bring together academics at Lancaster University and form a collaborative academic pursuit around contemporary issues in the field of human rights
  • to form an interactive forum for various interdisciplinary activities
  • to disseminate information and exchange ideas about human rights issues


The first session will be dedicated to

  • Introducing the Forum and its Aims
  • Presenting a film which highlights human rights issues in context
  • Identifying the interests of participants and formulating an agenda for the forthcoming academic year.

We hope to see you all there!
