The Institute

The Human Rights Institute was founded in March 2005 as the University of Valencia’s specific centre for multidisciplinary research on human rights. The Institute brings together researchers from different legal and social disciplines sharing basic purposes: advancing knowledge on human rights through multidisciplinary research, offering training and raising awareness through teaching activities, and promoting reflection, dialogue and commitment around human rights, particularly those of the most vulnerable or threatened individuals and groups.
