The Helena Kennedy Centre, part of Sheffield Hallam's department of law and criminology, has been formally accepted as a member of the AHRI following its annual Assembly Meeting, held in Leuven, Belgium. AHRI is a network of member institutions from 33 countries, which carries out research and educational activities in the field of human rights. The AHRI brings together human rights researchers from across a range of disciplines and facilitates the exchange of ideas and collaboration. As part of the Helena Kennedy Centre's formal acceptance to the AHRI, Dr Thomas Bundschuh, senior lecturer in human rights at the HKC, presented a paper at the Assembly Meeting, 'Durable peace through human rights in Colombia? The role of the UN and its challenges'. Sital Dhillon, director of the Helena Kennedy Centre said: "I am delighted that the HKC has been accepted as a member of the Association of Human Rights Institutes. "It is a reflection of our commitment to the delivery of excellent research and high quality education in human rights and social justice. We now look forward to sharing our research with fellow AHRI members and connecting with likeminded institutions from across the world, while also exploring new opportunities to collaborate on impactful, real-world projects".
