Poznań Human Rights Centre

Poznań Human Rights Centre was founded in 1973. It is a research institution working within the framework of the Institute of Legal Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The Centre was created with a view to conducting research and training experts as well as to promote knowledge in the field of human rights. Currently, one of our objectives is focus on the combined protection offered by national constitutional rights and internationally recognised rights, in particular the application of international standards within the national legal order.

The Center is supported by Foundation “Promotion of Human Rights – Research and Teaching” which was founded in 1990.
