About the Consortium
The Oxford Consortium for Human Rights conducts workshop seminars for students and faculty in collaboration with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict (ELAC). The Oxford Consortium currently hosts annual workshops for students and faculty in Oxford (spring and summer) and New York (fall), with additional workshops in development in other locations and with different areas of focus in human rights. Our workshops are student focused, but with a faculty component involving collaborative research (learn more about our workshops here).
The Consortium began in 2012, with generous financial support from Steve Raymund, David Stern, and Laura and Bob Sillerman, and the administrative support of Dean David Frank of the University of Oregon Clark Honors College and Caroline Massey of Merton College, Oxford. It is co-chaired by Cheyney Ryan and Hugo Slim, both Senior Fellows of ELAC. Dr. Ryan is also Director of Human Rights Programs for ELAC, Dr. Slim is Head of Policy for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland. The executive director is Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox of Quinnipiac University. The Consortium's work is enriched by the ongoing participation of our affiliated faculty members, as well as guest presenters who have included human rights practitioners, UN representatives, non-governmental organization leaders, and Oxford University scholars.
The Consortium invites the participation of new members. We are especially interested in adding university participants from the Global South.
