The PhD Triangle

The PhD Triangle is an initiative led by the human rights centres at the University of Cambridge, University of Essex and the London School of Economics. The Triangle provides an opportunity for PhD students based within the three partner institutions engaged in human rights research to come together once a year to present and share their research.

This year, the Triangle is expanding to welcome new partners. These include the Norwegian Center for Human Rights; the human rights centres and cohorts at the University of Antwerp; the Hertie School (Berlin); the Irish Centre for Human Rights (NUI, Galway); and the University of Pretoria Centre for Human Rights.

The 2022 programme

The Triangle is fundamentally committed to fostering and promoting interdisciplinary doctoral research across a broad range of human rights issues. This year’s programme includes presentations from doctoral researchers based at the Irish Centre for Human Rights (NUI, Galway) and Norwegian Centre for Human Rights, Oslo University.

Dinie Arie presented "International and Domestic Legal Approaches to Business and Human Rights: Human Rights Analysis of the Indonesian Palm Oil Industry, while Elsabe Boshoff presented "The Emerging Right to Sustainable Development in the African Human Rights System."
