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.”

The first three-year research cohort of the program began in October 2014, and the second will launch in October 2015.
