The Summer School is run in conjunction with George Washington University and led by Professor Freya Baetens from the Bonavero Institute, and Professor Ralph Steinhardt of GWU.

The 26-day residential summer school, taking place in July 2023, offers participants the opportunity to follow an intensive programme of university-level study in international human rights law within the beautiful surroundings of New College, Oxford.        

The programme offers courses focusing on the theory and practice of human rights law, including an introductory course in the fundamentals of international human rights law, an advanced course in human rights lawyering and electives that address important contemporary issues in the field.

Courses are taught by an internationally recognised and distinguished faculty combining both academic and practical experience. Tutors include Professor Joshua Castellino, Executive Director of Minority Rights Group International; Dr Elvira Dominguez-Redondo, Associate Professor of International Law at Middlesex University and Professor Charles Ngwena, Professor of Human Rights Law at the University of Pretoria.

Professor Baetens says ‘We at the Bonavero institute are delighted to be running this summer school and to offer participants the chance to develop their academic knowledge and practical skills which will enable them to actively contribute to the support of human rights globally. The summer school will create a group of connected individuals with a network of skills, knowledge and experience to take them forward into the next stages of their careers.’

Registration is now open for the Summer School so take a look at the website and find out more.

Students will be admitted on a rolling basis and admissions close when maximum capacity has been reached or by 1 April, whichever comes first.
