LU Profile Area: Human rights
Human Rights in a Polarised World
The profile area will consolidate and develop Lund University’s standing as a unique hub for cross-disciplinary human rights research and education. The field of Human Rights addresses challenges related to growing inequality gaps between rich and poor, refugee and migration movements, health, the climate crisis, conflicts and new technologies.
By bringing together several research disciplines, the profile area can promote human rights as effective tools for justice, while simultaneously strengthening democratic ideals, that are today threatened by authoritarianism, violence and inequaliy.
Human Rights in a Polarised World is one out of five profile areas at Lund University.
