Centre for Applied Human Rights students' placements
LLM (Master of Laws) and MA (Master) students started fieldwork for their placements.
Between 28 November and 9 December, LLM (Master of Laws) and MA (Master) students started fieldwork for their placements. Student groups based in York worked with the UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery, the Indigenous Reserve of Huellas Caloto (Colombia), the Centre for Applied Legal Studies - CALS at Wits University (South Africa) and the Protective Fellowship Scheme hosted by CAHR, the Reverse the Ban campaign in York and the York Human Rights City Network.
In addition, four groups of CAHR LLM and MA students travelled to Cape Town in South Africa to conduct fieldwork with four partner organisations: Resource Africa, Natural Justice, Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust, and the International Labour Research and Information Group.
Throughout their placements, students participated in workshops, and conducted in-person or remote interviews and field visits relating to their projects. The data collected will feed into different outputs that will be used by the partner organisations to advance their work.
