About us

Our mission

The Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH) aims to bring together academics, practitioners, and policy-makers from across the globe to advance the understanding and protection of human rights and equality. Through the vigorous exchange of ideas and resources, we strive to facilitate a better understanding of human rights principles, to develop new approaches to policy, and to influence the development of human rights law and practice.

Who we are

OxHRH is based in the University of Oxford Faculty of Law and is directed by Professor Sandra Fredman, the Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA. The Hub is managed by a team of dedicated academics and students.

What we do

The Oxford Human Rights Hub strives to build a global community around human rights issues by enhancing the understanding of human rights law and practice.

We harness the power of technology to create a rich and freely accessible body of research and learning tools for students, teachers, academics and advocates of human rights both in Oxford and beyond.

We are trailblazers in using digital technology to increase access to human rights information and knowledge through our:
