Human rights research is part and parcel of Utrecht Law School's five research programmes, of the Utrecht Centre for Global Challenges (UGLOBE), of the University's focus area ‘Culture, Citizenship and Human Rights’ and of its strategic theme ‘Institutions for Open Societies’. The Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) is the key centre of expertise of human rights research and education at Utrecht University. It offers internationally oriented study programmes, conducts interdisciplinary research and organises a range of activities in the field of human rights. Current research relates to transitional justice, gender and human rights, regional human rights mechanisms, human rights protection during and after conflict, human rights education, human rights cities and migration, and the interplay between human rights and international and EU law.
