This four-week summer school offers participants the opportunity to follow an intensive program of university-level study in human rights law within the beautiful surroundings of New College, Oxford. The program was established by the University of Oxford and George Washington University in 1995 and almost 1000 students from all over the world have attended since that time.
For the 2009 session, the program has assembled an internationally recognized faculty offering courses on the practice, history, philosophy and doctrine of international human rights law. The program offers an introductory course on the fundamentals of international human rights law, an advanced seminar on human rights advocacy and afternoon electives that address important contemporary issues in the field. In addition to these core courses, the programme will include a lecture series by some of the leading authorities and actors in the field of international human rights law.
