You’re invited on a quest for human rights

22 Aug 2018

The new Australian Human Rights Institute is looking for Associates to join its pursuit of practical solutions to global problems. 

The Australian Human Rights Institute invites all UNSW Sydney and Canberra staff who share a commitment to enhancing human rights though research and education to become an Associate of the Australian Human Rights Institute. 

The Institute, which launched in March, is dedicated to the search for human rights solutions through a multidisciplinary approach. 

The challenge of extending equal rights across the globe, as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights sets out, cannot be done by tackling the problems from one angle. 

Associates of the Institute will receive: 

  • access to workshops and events 
  • inclusion in a searchable database of staff on the Institute’s website 
  • opportunities to connect researchers with each other, with external organisations, and with media and impact opportunities. 

Staff from every UNSW Faculty who are working towards social justice and human rights, broadly understood, are invited to join.
