The Centre does not have a formal doctoral programme, but academic staff based in the Centre supervise PhD students via their home department (e.g. Law, Sociology etc). We welcome registered LSE MPhil and PhD students from any department or discipline who are conducting human-rights related research to affiliate to the Centre.

The LSE Human Rights Doctoral Network
The Human Rights Doctoral Network is open to LSE MPhil / PhD students from any department or discipline who are working in the area of human rights. The Network has an active Moodle page designed to assist LSE doctoral students from a wide variety of departments to share information and ideas, support each other and develop new collaborations.
Human Rights Doctoral Research Forum
The Centre for the Study of Human Rights is a member of the Human Rights Doctoral Research Forum - a growing collaboration with Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex and the Centre of Governance and Human Rights at the University of Cambridge.
The Forum, launched in November 2011, aims to encourage participation and collaboration by doctoral students researching human rights from the partner institutions. Students from all all three partner institutions have presented and commented on their work at special networking and workshop events.
The next workshop takes place at the Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex.
