Essex Summer School in Human Rights Research Methods: 1-5 July 2019

by | Mar 15, 2019

The Essex Human Rights Centre will be offering its five day summer school in Human Rights Research Methods from 1- 5 July 2019.

Now in its 5th year, this summer school explores the core methods and skills needed to carry out human rights research whether for academic scholarship, bids for large research projects or reports for NGOs, governments and international organisations.

Participants will learn how to design research projects and carry them out both in a headquarters environment or while working in the field. They will learn about the range of tools and methodologies for human rights research (whether academic or practical) and when, why and how to employ particular research methods in specific research contexts.

The summer school not only focuses on documenting human rights violations using qualitative and quantitative research methods but it also addresses questions of how to measure the impact and effectiveness of policies and practices based on human rights.
