Rights and Freedoms Cluster
The Rights and Freedoms research cluster is active in a variety of international, national and local projects producing excellent research.
Members are proud that Royal Holloway’s stunning main campus is located close to Runnymede, where the Magna Carta was signed in 1215. The Magna Carta is recognised as one of the foundation stones of justice and the international rights movements.
Building on this important heritage, the cluster engages in impactful research spanning a number of disciplines. The cluster comprises a mixture of academics from law, criminology, social work and social policy, researching:
- the role law, society and culture play in the creation and protection of personal freedoms and corresponding rights, globally and nationally, from theoretical, doctrinal and critical perspectives;
- cultural, including intellectual property, rights;
- access to justice and private law rights in their social context.
The Cluster provides a forum for members for exchange ideas, share information and support one another's research through collaboration and peer review.
