The Centre conducts state-of-the-art research in the field of local and regional human rights. It is the Centre’s core belief that each research project should surpass the theoretical sphere. This means that carried out research and, consequently, its output is always tightly interlinked to and has an important impact on practice. The achieved outcome is geared to both local authorities and scientific stakeholders. Concrete projects include the ongoing development of indicators, strategies and policy-based insights on local human rights using a multidisciplinary approach. Research also encompasses monitoring jurisprudence and activities relevant to human rights on the local level.
