Student video in recognition of 16 Days of Activism
Our students have put together a video in recognition of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence and Human Rights Day. They express how inequality contributes to gender-based violence and shapes the decisions women and girls make in their communities. "The video also expresses what we hope to see in the world: #GenerationEquality", says Nabila Okino, student of the LLM in International Human Rights Law and Practice.

Through our masters courses, our students forge close relationships with organisations to develop and deliver a project with impact. Their experience mirrors a classic human rights mission. Past projects have included drafting a legal brief for women’s groups to obtain standing in proceedings in a Malaysian court and developing human rights indicators for the York: Human Rights City.
