International law, human rights and environment research network
The international law, human rights and environment research network is a multi disciplinary group whose research activities cover the related fields of international law, human rights and environmental law. In an increasingly complex and interrelated global environment, most issues, from the protection of the natural environment to the forced migration of people, and the preservation of international peace and security transcend national boundaries and demand innovative international solutions. The network is thus focused on a broad range of research and clinical projects that are international in outlook and cover issues such as endangered species, global warming and environmental taxation, immigration and refugees, and the promotion of human rights in the national and international context. Some members of the group are also engaged in research on understanding the place of Islamic religion and ideologies in contemporary societies.
The work of the network combines theoretical research with a practical outlook with the aim of contributing to and helping to shape national policies on the prevention of trafficking in human beings, the admission of asylum seekers, the development of the national agenda on the environment, and informed community debate and perceptions on multiculturalism.
Members of the network also contribute to the postgraduate coursework specialisation:
