October 8, 2013

CEU’s Human Rights Program was admitted as a member of the Association of Human Rights Institutes at the 2013 AHRI Annual Meeting held Sept. 10 at Senate House in London. The Human Rights Program’s application for AHRI membership was supported by several of AHRI’s 40-plus institutions, including the University of Vienna and the Human Rights Centre, Queen’s University, Belfast. Program Chair Karoly Bard expressed program participants’ strong interest in exploring the opportunities provided by this network. The Human Rights Program, which brings together 11 permanent faculty and over 30 visiting faculty members with human rights expertise under the auspices of the Department of Legal Studies, expects to boost its research and other activities through its membership. Assistant Professor of Legal Studies Sejal Parmar is the program’s representative to AHRI. For more information, see
