The world – renowned Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex is pleased to announce the 2020 programme of its flagship summer school on Human Rights Research Methods.

Making robust claims about human rights, whether in examining violations, or in formulating responses, or in assessing impact, requires methodological rigour, especially in age of disinformation and misinformation. Now in its 7th year, our popular one-week programme on Human Rights Research Methods caters to this growing demand for greater attention to methodology in human rights research.

Taught by an international faculty of leading academics and practitioners, this year's Summer School will be held from 6-10 July 2020 at our Colchester campus. It will cover a range of qualitative and quantitative methods in human rights research that are essential for human rights professionals, researchers and postgraduate students. There will also be an opportunity learn about human rights advocacy from both international and Essex-based experts.
