Minority Rights & Indigenous Peoples Summer School, June 13 - 17, 2011
Irish Centre for Human Rights

The Irish Centre for Human Rights is dedicated to the study and promotion of human rights and humanitarian law. Whilst the Centre is autonomous in both its physical location and day-to-day operations, its academic staff are members of the Faculty of Law at the National University of Ireland, Galway, with whom the Centre is linked and maintains a close and cooperative working relationship.

Since its establishment in Janurary 2000 the Centre has been able to attract high quality students to its various Masters programmes and also houses a thriving community of doctoral researchers, many of whom actively participate in the day-to-day affairs and projects organised under the auspices of the Centre. The growth of this community has also resulted in making the Centre a focal point for local human rights activity both in Galway city and in Ireland as a whole.
