“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 fully-funded joint interdisciplinary doctoral study and research program, focusing on these challenges.
The first three-year research cohort of the program began in October 2014, the second in October 2015, and the third cohort launchend in October 2016. Participants benefit from a full scholarship and a rich academic and professional qualification program for three years of their doctoral studies.
