The Irish Centre for Human Rights is one of the worlds premier university-based institutions for the study and promotion of human rights and humanitarian law. Since its establishment in January 2000, the Centre has developed a global reputation for excellence in the field of human rights teaching, research and advocacy, which has enabled the institution to attract high quality students to its acclaimed masters programmes and to build a thriving community of doctoral researchers. The Centre currently has eight permanent full-time faculty, comprised of two Professors and six lecturers, sixteen additional lecturers who serve in an adjunct or visiting capacity, five doctoral fellows, a post-doctoral fellow, two project staff and three administrative assistants.
