WELCOME TO RIGHTS COMPASS
Blog and Network for Human Rights


It is common awareness that legal systems around the world continue to grow and extend the reach of human rights through various means. The normative field of human rights itself has acquired great strength while influencing multiple settings and diverse global agendas.
 
The initiatives we take at Rights Compass aim to map this vast interdisciplinary field of study. Through our conversations with the experts in a range of fields, blog posts and lectures we discuss and explore key concepts and themes in human rights.
 
Our Conversations and Blog Entries are the most interactive and vibrant feature.
