Human Rights Protection

Our research on human rights protection focuses on cross-cutting foundational and practical questions of how protection regimes and mechanisms deal with new and ‘burning’ issues in the interest of victims. It looks at protection at national and international levels in the context of armed conflict and law enforcement and aims at informing the work of the UN Human Rights Council.
