“There are three primary categories of contemporary ‘pressures’ that constitute systematic challenges for human rights, requiring new thinking and interdisciplinary research: first, crises and emergencies; second, the reality of diversity; and finally, intensified global interactions in the process of globalization.”
“Human Rights under Pressure – Ethics, Law, and Politics” – HR-UP is a new joint interdisciplinary doctoral study and research program, focusing on these challenges.
The first three-year research cohort of the program will launch in October, 2014. Our doctoral and postdoctoral fellows will benefit from a full scholarship and a rich academic and professional qualification program for three years of their doctoral studies.
Additional detailed information on the application process and on the program is included on our website: http://www.hr-up.net
