NNHRR Blog HUMAN RIGHTS HERE launched!

On the occasion of this year’s Human Rights Day, the Netherlands Network for Human Rights Research (NNHRR) launched HUMAN RIGHTS HERE (HRH), its new blog on human rights research and practice!
HUMAN RIGHTS HERE aims to forge a closer connection between human rights research and rights in practice, by facilitating exchange between scholars and other stakeholders, such as practitioners, government and international organisation officials, civil society and non-governmental organisations, national human rights institutions, independent administrative authorities, students and the media.
Submissions are invited from scholars and practitioners both inside and outside of the Netherlands. Members of the NNHRR and early career scholars are especially welcomed to submit blog content.
We will accept contributions on human rights that involve the outcomes of recent research, but also those that analyse administrative, political and legislative developments, recent academic events and case-law. The blog post should demonstrate societal relevance. You may send you contribution and/or questions to HumanRightsHere@asser.nl
