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.

If Colombia is the focal point of the new global gold rush then Marmato, a mining town with over 500 years of history, is the new frontier. In its mountain there are $20 billion dollars in gold, but its 8,000 inhabitants are at risk of being displaced by an open-pit mining project. MARMATO chronicles how the townspeople confront a Canadian mining company that wants the gold beneath their homes. Filmed over the course of 6 years, MARMATO is a canvas of magic realism and the confrontation with globalized mining.
