Joint Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program "Human Rights under Pressure - Ethics, Law, and Politics" (HR-UP)

“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 joint interdisciplinary doctoral study and research program, focusing on these challenges.

The first three-year research cohort of the program began in October 2014, and the second will launch in October 2015. Successful applicants admitted to the program 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 this website.
