About Us

Our research vision is to conduct studies on the promotion, advancement, and respect of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law. We reflect on how international human rights bodies function, and how to inspire better interaction between domestic and international law within its wider social and political context. 

The programme is embedded within the Faculty of Law and Criminology and the Human Rights Centre of Ghent University.
