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 leader of the Research Centre Manfred Nowak closely works together with the deputy-leaders Christina Binder and Hannes Tretter.
The Research Centre assembles 15 academics of 10 departments of 5 faculties of the University of Vienna with the purpose of strengthening the interdisciplinary research on the topic of human rights.
The HUMAN RIGHTS TALKS and the film series of the Research Centre Human Rights have taken place since 2009 in cooperation with the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights.
