The Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH) brings together academics, practitioners and policy-makers from across the globe to advance the understanding and protection of human rights and equality. Through the vigorous exchange of ideas and resources, the OxHRH strives to facilitate a better understanding of human rights principles, to develop new approaches to policy, and to influence the development of human rights law and practice. The OxHRH strives to facilitate cross-jurisdictional comparative research. The primary vehicle for these exchange is the OxHRH Blog, featuring short, incisive analyses of new developments in human rights law, each written by a specialist.
Directed by Professor Sandra Fredman, the Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA, the OxHRH shares knowledge and best practice via seven primary channels; The OxHRH website, blog, via social media, the fortnightly newsletter, and by way of hosting seminars, RightsUp podcasts, interactive webinars and conferences. Through this routes, the OxHRH now engages with pertinent human rights law issues on every continent with 8,000 followers on Twitter, over 3,600 followers on Facebook, and an international mailing list of close to 1,500 members. As of September, 2015 the OxHRH Blog has published over 1,000 posts written by more than 360 different contributors, most of whom are situated outside of the UK.
OxHRH works in close collaboration with Oxford Legal Assistance (OLA) and Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) both of which are dedicated to the principles and practice of public interest law on a pro bono basis.
