The Helena Kennedy Room at the Bonavero Institute is a dedicated workspace providing opportunities for inter-generational knowledge exchange. The space is shared between graduate students and academics alike and is part of the Institute's broader commitment to establishing a community for human rights researchers across Oxford and beyond.

The Helena Kennedy Reading Room at the Bonavero Institute

Students working in the areas of human rights law, public law, public international law, the rule of law and/or related fields are welcomed to apply for a six month residency in the reading room. Twelve students will be allocated a workspace from 5 November 2017 to 20 April 2018, and a further twelve for the period from 23 April 2018 to 5 October 2018.

We hope that most if not all postgraduate law students who wish to spend six months at the Bonavero Institute will be accommodated for at least one six-month period during the course of their studies.
