Research Centre Human Rights

The inter-disciplinary Research Centre “Human Rights” was established as a subunit of the Faculty of Law at the University of Vienna in May 2014. The Research Centre succeeded the Research Platform “Human Rights in the European Context” after a six‐year period of successful interdisciplinary research in the field of human rights.

The director of the Research Centre Manfred Nowak closely worked with the deputy-directors Christina Binder and Hannes Tretter. The Research Centre assembled 15 academics of five faculties of the University of Vienna with the purpose of strengthening the interdisciplinary research on the topic of human rights.

The term of the Research Centre Human Rights ended on 30 June 2018. The BIM will continue the good collaboration with the University of Vienna and will re-define its shape over the coming months.
