Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) is inviting volunteers to assist with research for the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Arbitrary Detention. The research will relate to procedures and remedies available to persons deprived of their liberty by arrest or detention across a range of contexts, including military detention, administrative detention (e.g. under anti-terrorism legislation), preventive detention (e.g. of offenders who have already served their sentence), and immigration detention. The research will ultimately feed into an analysis of State practice in these areas. The research will start immediately and will be due in mid-late January. It should require approximately 15-20 hours of individual research, with the potential for some follow-up between January and April depending on how the project unfolds. We are looking for volunteers across as wide a range of jurisdictions as possible; some knowledge of international or domestic legal frameworks governing detention practices is desirable but not required. If you are interested, please send a brief CV, indicating relevant experience and familiarity with particular jurisdictions, to the Committee at opbp@law.ox.ac.uk by midday on Friday 6 December. Please include 'Arbitrary Detention Project' in your email subject line. We'd also appreciate it if you could indicate whether you would be available for an introductory meeting in Ninth Week, though this will in no way affect your application.
