Our research, knowledge exchange, teaching, protective and advocacy activities are anchored in real-world human rights and humanitarian challenges and opportunities.
As such, we think politically and use socio-legal, interdisciplinary, and participatory methodologies to protect human rights and activism.

Our protective work: Protective Fellowships for Human Rights Defenders
100 defenders, 50 countries, 10 years - We are the first centre to involve frontline human rights defenders in every aspect of our work, through protective fellowships, teaching and research, under the umbrella of the Human Rights Defenders Hub.
Visiting human rights defenders form the core of our work in terms of providing training for defenders, conducting research and incorporating the visiting defenders as an integral part of the MA and LLM programmes.
Students in action
CAHR is distinctive in supporting practical student activism, which is embedded in our degrees, linked to ongoing research, and initiated by students themselves.
