HRRC's Network of Human Rights Researchers (NHRR)

To build a community that unites efforts for human rights protection and advocacy we established the Network of Human Rights Researchers.

Members of NHRR are not part of HRRC staff. They are individuals who cooperated with HRRC on different occasions and members of a wider professional network of our organization. Members of NHRR are highly qualified researchers and practitioners who work in the areas of educational research, business and human rights, law, sociology, media etc. 

Meet the members of the NHRR.
