Call for applications: Mobility program in human rights 2024


Deadline: 7 November 2023

The Institute for Human Rights at Åbo Akademi University (ÅAU) invites applications for short-term research mobility (1–4 weeks) in 2024. The objectives of the mobility program are to promote research collaboration between researchers at ÅAU and partner universities, to develop new and deepen existing research and development initiatives, and to support the internationalization of research training in human rights.

The following thematic areas are prioritized:

  • Localization in international human rights law
  • The interaction between international human rights law and national criminal law with a particular focus on the rights of the ‘vulnerable’
  • Human rights education
  • Human rights, migration, mobility
  • Socio-economic rights, in particular, social protection and social innovation

The call is targeted at scholars on different academic levels (Professors, Postdoctoral researchers, and doctoral candidates). Priority is given to scholars in law, or scholars from other disciplines with an interest in law as a social and/or cultural phenomenon.

Accepted mobility researchers are offered scholarships covering travel, accommodation and living costs.
