Notes and Changes

Please note change in time and venue

The Oxford Human Rights Hub is pleased to announce its third workshop for human rights MPhil and DPhil students at Oxford University. This half-day workshop will bring together and foster a network of graduate students and academics in various disciplines working in human rights at Oxford. The aim is to come together as a community to explore current developments, to analyse existing weakness and to attempt to point towards future improvements in the way in which human rights can address current legal and social problems.

MPhil and DPhil students are invited to present on their current research in progress. This is an invaluable opportunity to enrich student’s doctoral research and to gain feedback from peers and academics specialising in human rights. Students at all stages of their doctorate are encouraged to participate.

Oxford Law Faculty members including Professor Sandra Fredman (Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA, Director of OxHRH), Dr Meghan Campbell (Weston Junior Research Fellow, New College, Deputy-Director of the OxHRH) will be chairing sessions and participating to provide research insights, suggestions and advice on the presentations.

Hart Publishing will also be attending to provide advice on publication.

Interested MPhil and DPhil students are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to the Oxford Human Rights Hub at oxfordhumanrightshub@law.ox.ac.uk by Feb 8th, 2017.
