Our Directors met the Human Rights Committee
The Human Rights Committee organised on 19 July a closed meeting with the drafters of The Nijmegen Principles and Guidelines on Interim Measures for the Protection of Human Rights, including Profs Burbano Herrera and Haeck.
We trust this important meeting will contribute to the real protection of persons in danger around the world.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

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.
