Description

Human Rights Law, Compliance and Social Transformation

This project aims to bring together two dynamic research centres from the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) uniting experts on law, politics and society at the Centre on Law and Social Transformation (CLAST) at the University of Bergen with specialists on human rights implementation at the Human Rights Implementation Centre (HRIC) at the University of Bristol. The project takes Dr Penny Miles' current research on compliance, in the case of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACtHR) ruling on sexual orientation rights as human rights, as the point of departure for linking HRIC's work on compliance with CLAST's work on Global Lawfare for Sexual and Reproductive Rights. The aim is to engage with academics working in CLAST's area of expertise on 1) Sexual and Reproductive Rights ii) Functioning of Courts, and iii) Social and Political factors that might be relevant to compliance and human rights implementation.
