Doctoral Students

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 join the LSE Human Rights Doctoral Network.  

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 a Moodle page 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 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  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.
