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.
