The International Justice and Human Rights Centre at Edge Hill University is committed to the promotion and development of human rights and international law. The Centre was established by the University in 2022, to build on the work, research, and connections of the previous research Unit.

The Centre will prioritise research projects aimed at addressing current global challenges where our expertise can contribute to innovative thinking, policy development, and real-world impact.
