The Promise Institute Europe

Building the impact of UCLA Law and the Promise Institute as a leading voice in human rights law and policy.

Located in The Hague, home of international justice, the UCLA Law Promise Institute Europe provides significant and unique training opportunities for students who are interested in international law and human rights. Building on the established practice of the Promise Institute, it engages with diverse frameworks and disciplines to generate new thinking on human rights, and advocates for change in coalition with academics, practitioners, and activists. Using its location at the heart of international human rights law and policy making in Europe, Promise Europe advances collaborations on the international stage, and plays an important role as global convenor on cutting edge human rights issues.
