About the group
The group is multidisciplinary and addresses issues that range from the local to the global. One of the main goals of the group is to create an academic environment in which human rights-based approaches to development can be empirically tested and conceptually refined.

From 2011 to 2014 we have a special focus on Business and Human Rights, Disability Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility.
