Irish Centre for Human Rights

The Irish Centre for Human Rights is one of the world's premier university-based institutions for the study and promotion of human rights and humanitarian law. Since its establishment in January 2000, the Centre has developed a global reputation for excellence in the field of human rights teaching, research and advocacy, which has enabled the institution to attract high quality students to its acclaimed masters and its undergraduate programs as well as to build a thriving community of doctoral researchers.

The Centre currently has eight academic faculty members, comprised of three Professors and five lecturers. Fifteen additional lecturers also serve in an adjunct or visiting capacity. A total of two project staff, three administrative assistants, a post-doctoral fellow and seven doctoral fellows also play a key role in carrying out the work of the Centre.
