Background

Recognised as study group in 1980; granted research committee status in 1987.

 

Objectives

Focuses on the development of internationally recognized human rights. Since its inception, RC 26 has pursued the following research themes: Foundations of human rights in the context of political tension between universal human rights and cultural relativism; the nature of human rights as a political concept; the relationship between democracy, development and human rights; the causes of human rights violations; the place held by human rights in foreign policy-making; the role of international governmental and non-governmental organizations; and transitional justice.
