AHRI Condemns the Recent Backlash Against Human Rights

News: May 15, 2017

The Association of Human Rights Institutes (AHRI), condemns the recent backlash against human rights, the rule of law and democracy, and the alarmingly shrinking space for civil society actors, including human rights defenders, academics and the media. In the Leuven Declaration on the Backlash Against Independent Human Rights Mechanisms they urgently appeal to governments to respect independent human rights mechanisms and allow them to function to the full extent of their mandates.

The School of Global Studies is a member of the Association of Human Rights Institutes, AHRI, a network of 55 member institutions that carries out research and educational activities in the field of human rights. The member institutions are from 33 different countries. AHRI's objective is to bring together human rights researchers from across the disciplines, to facilitate the exchange of ideas and collaboration, and to promote research, education and discussion in the field of human rights. AHRI is supportive of PhD researchers and the facilitation of exchange between the different member institutions.
