Start of term - welcome to our new Human Rights students

We'd like to wish all our new students a warm welcome to the Library. Students at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies are either starting the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights, or studying for a PhD in a wide range of topics and regions.

The teaching collection in human rights is focused on supporting the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights, and has been built up over the course of this programme to be an important and up to date collection of material on human rights, that is well supplemented by collections at the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies and elsewhere in the Senate House Library.

The general Commonwealth Studies collections reflect the interest of the Commonwealth as an organisation in human rights issues, as well as the issues that have impacted on and within various Commonwealth nations - including recognition of indigenous peoples' rights, genocide and war, apartheid, cultural rights and the environment, globalisation and development, and reconciliation.

Both collections are available to consult on a reference-only basis for any library member not on the MA programme. Library staff are always willing to help and support your research and study.
