Netherlands Network for Human Rights Research (NNHRR)

The Netherlands Network for Human Rights Research (NNHRR) associates junior and senior human rights researchers in the Netherlands and aims to connect human rights research and practice. The T.M.C. Asser Instituut has been entrusted with the coordination and administration of the Network.

On 10 November 2017, the NNHRR was launched at the Asser Institute. A continuation of the long-existing Netherlands School of Human Rights Research, the Network unfolds a new chapter for human rights research in The Netherlands.

The NNHRR has been tasked with:

  • Maintaining and strengthening the cooperation among human rights researchers in the Netherlands and abroad;
  • Providing an interuniversity research network context to researchers, PhDs in particular;
  • Enhance the visibility of Dutch Human Rights Research nationally and internationally and promote participation in international human rights research projects.

Moreover, the NNHRR aims to:

  • Reach out to non-academic organisations, such as, Dutch Ministries, NGOs or Human Rights Defenders, for their suggestions and inputs in the design of the research agenda and for valorisation of the research outcomes.
