Today, our dynamic headquarters has around 35 staff members working with human rights research, policy, education and direct engagement. The office provides researchers, staff and students with a conducive study and work environment. We regularly hold lectures, high-level roundtables and other events and organise much of our work that we do on a national level from Lund.
