Minority rights summer course
A law department short course
The annual Minority Rights Summer Course has been running for over a decade, bringing together human rights law practitioners, researchers and students to review and discuss legal, political and practical issues faced by minority rights law, including the rights of indigenous peoples.
This year, we have invited speakers ranging from established academics in fields relevant to minority rights, including international criminal law and international human rights law, expert practitioners from NGOs such as Minority Rights Group International and the Forest Peoples’ Programme, and international organisations notably the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The overarching focus of the course is on case law, to root discourse in the realisation rather than the proclamation of rights. You can find full course details and the three day programme of presentations in the Minority Rights Summer Course guide.
Who is this course for?
This course is available to all those with an interest in minority rights law and there are no set academic entry requirements.
When will the course run?
The course will take place at our Hendon campus in north London running for three days from Friday 22 June until Sunday 24 June.
What are the course fees?
The Minority Rights Summer Course is £100 for students and £200 for non-students. This includes tea, coffee and lunch on each day of the course.
