STATEMENT: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The health, welfare and safety of staff, resident students, fellows and visitors, is a priority for the Bonavero Institute. We recognise that this is an anxious time for many and thought it would be helpful to set out our approach.
We recommend that all at the Bonavero Institute follow the NHS guidelines concerning how to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including revised advice about the on-line NHS 111 service. More information can be found via the University website and on the Public Health England’s website.
We also advise staff, students and visitors to reduce non-essential travel for the moment. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel the International Round of the Price Media Moot on the basis of the public health situation. Our termly calendar of events for Hilary Term is now complete, and we will reassess whether it is necessary to postpone or cancel events planned for Trinity Term in mid April.
The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights is a dedicated institute within the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford. Since October 2017, the Institute has been housed in a new building at Mansfield College. Here it will undertake worldclass research in the field of human rights law and foster public engagement in human rights issues beyond the academy.
As part of its mission, the Institute seeks to integrate human rights research and practice within the Law Faculty and the University more broadly. It is establishing a vibrant community of graduate students, hosts outstanding scholars of law and other disciplines, and collaborates with practitioners engaged in the most pressing contemporary human rights issues around the world.
