UZHR Education and Training

UZHR Colloquium for Doctoral Students

Every fall semester, the UZHR organises an interdisciplinary colloquium for doctoral students of all faculties of the University of Zurich whose research projects address questions related to the field of human rights. It is the aim of this colloquium to provide doctoral students with a forum in which they can present their research ideas/theses/results to a critical audience and discuss them with fellow doctoral students.

The next colloquium will take place in the fall semester 2021.

BHRICO Summer School

BHRICO (Business and Human Rights - Interdisciplinary Challenges and Opportunities) is a two-week interdisciplinary intensive programme at the University of Zurich organised by the Centre for Human Rights Studies of the University of Zurich (UZHR) and its partner institutions. The goal of the summer school is to provide tools for connecting two areas that often seem incompatible: Business and Human Rights. 

Due to current uncertainties, the next BRHICO Summer School is scheduled to take place in summer 2022. More detailed information about BHRICO 2022 will follow in summer 2021.
