The Australian Human Rights Institute breaks silos between academic research and real-world problems to progress human rights.
We deliver multidisciplinary, applied research, empowering communities and educating the next generation of human rights leaders.
We work in partnership with government, industry and human rights defenders through advocacy, education and public engagement to achieve impact.
The Institute's research projects seek to understand the barriers to, and realisation of, rights across the three strategic pillars of business, health and gender justice, with an increasing focus on climate change among other pressing human rights issues.
We aim to develop applied solutions to address human rights abuses, as well as strengthen UNSW’s capacity for policy and media outreach on human rights issues.
We're continually seeking to build new partnerships with alliance universities, national and international human rights organisations, government, corporations, and non-government organisations to advance knowledge exchange and develop research projects.
