Louise Arbour Human Rights Research Studentships

The Institute of Commonwealth Studies will launch, beginning in the academic year 2012-13, the Louise Arbour Human Rights Research Studentships for new MPhil/PhD research students.

Madam Louise Arbour is a former Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court and former Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada. In December 2010, Madam Arbour was awarded a Doctor of Laws of the University of London, honoris causa, and the Institute is honoured to offer studentships in her name in recognition of her career and achievements.

The Louise Arbour studentships provide the successful applicant with a fee waiver equivalent to up to 100% of the full-time or part-time tuition fee. In 2012-13, up to two full-time and two part-time studentships will be available. Successful applicants will be of exceptional quality, evidenced by previous academic achievement at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Successful applicants will have outstanding research proposals and genuine and demonstrable interest in being supervised by a member of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies faculty.
