Researchers

The Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) is the home base of a vibrant, interdisciplinary and international group of researchers, lecturers, and PhD students. SIM staff participates in a number of key research programmes of the School of Law and of Utrecht University. Transitional justice, regional human rights mechanisms, human rights protection during and after conflict, and the interplay between human rights and international and EU law are some of our main fields of expertise. SIM Fellows are researchers within the wider Utrecht Law School with whom SIM closely cooperates.
