The Think Tank Programme on Human Rights, Family and Gender seeks to highlight the complexities of Human Rights from interdisciplinary perspectives that recognise the interconnectivity of global issues surrounding family and gender. The discourse on Human Rights is continuously being redefined as a result of diverse geographies, vocabularies, cultural, social and historical contestations. Our programme aims to act as a platform to highlight key challenges faced in the implementation of human rights globally, in particular as they impact and intersect with issues of gender and family. Our goal is to provide policy recommendations based on our common research interests and global network.
