Welcome to CHRC

The Centre on Human Rights in Conflict (CHRC) is an interdisciplinary centre that carries out academic and policy-orientated research in situations of military, political, cultural, social, economic conflict and in transition from authoritarian regimes. Our work addresses the complex and dynamic relationships between human rights and conflict, including:

  • Human rights violations as causes and consequences of conflict
  • Human rights claims as sources of conflict
  • Dilemmas of accountability in post-conflict situations
  • Human rights as a framework for resolving conflicts and building post-authoritarian societies.

The CHRC focuses on the interplay between international law and international politics and the legal, political and cultural contests about human rights.
