OUP: Oxford Human Rights Hub

There is a confusingly large number of human rights websites available online and it can be difficult to decipher the good from the bad. The Oxford Human Rights Hub is certainly a treasure. The objective of the Hub is to advance our understanding of human rights and equality by sharing ideas and resources. The active blog encourages contributions from academics, practitioners and policy makers from all corners of the world. What makes the Human Rights Hub website attractive is its ability to be relevant, readable and far-reaching. Entries in the blog have focused on a number of topics from the ‘Emergence of Business and Human Rights in the EU’s External Relations’ to ‘A Duty to Prosecute Hate Speech under the European Convention on Human Rights?’ The Hub also hosts events; the 2014 Annual Conference entitled ‘Conference on Women and Poverty: A Human Rights Approach’ was held in Kigali, Rwanda. The Hub itself is based in the University of Oxford Faculty of Law and directed by Sandra Fredman, a Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA. Audio recordings from past events are easily accessible on the website which allow those of us who have missed events such as ‘Referrals to the Grand Chamber of the European Court of human Rights: What Questions are Serious Enough?’ to catch up at our leisure. The Oxford Human Rights Hub has proven itself a credible human rights website with a wide range to offer including news entries, working papers and for the social media savvy; even a twitter stream.
