The Human Rights Centre has a long history of working in countries transitioning from conflict or authoritarian regimes from local work in Northern Ireland to international research in countries such as Turkey, Uganda, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia and Sri Lanka. We work closely with neighbouring Transitional Justice Institute, Ulster University, as well as different organs of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC).
