How can victims of a fatal fire in a textile factory in Pakistan claim compensation from the main client of the textile factory, a huge clothing discounter in Germany? Are there alternatives to going to court? To which extent can companies be held liable for exploitation of workers? BIM’s Social Justice-Team works on these questions. Joining different expertise in the Social Justice-Team led to several recent research outcomes, which we are happy to present to you.

European Master's Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) [Cover]

We are pleased to inform you that the European Master's Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) is now ready to accept applications.

The programme is an intensive one-year advanced master's course offering and an outstanding mix of theory and practice and preparing students for careers in international organisations, field operations, governmental and non-governmental bodies and academia.

The work of BIM can be divided into four areas: Basic research, applied research, education and teaching and consultancy and training. We do not work in all four areas in each of our key areas. However, it is important to us to install a translational research cycle for selected research questions. In our case, this means to carry out targeted basic research at the interface to applied research in order to make the results applicable to practice and to achieve a societal benefit.
