Project Deadline Details

If you are to complete this project to the best of your ability you will need to ensure you meet the following deadlines:


Friday 17th November – Primary Research should be arranged

Friday 24th November – All research should be completed

Friday 1st  December – Draft of report handed to Mr Humphreys

Wednesday 6th December – Mr Humphreys returns report draft

Wednesday 13th December – Final deadline for submission of reports to Queen Mary University

8th – 19th January – Work on presentations, incl. run through with Mr Humphreys

Monday 22nd January – Presentation Evening


This is a far larger research project than anything you will have done before, so it is important that you are organised and communicate with your group throughout.

As a group you will need to meet at least once a week with your teacher supervisor (lunchtime and/or after school) to discuss how your research and report is progressing. It also means we’re up to speed on how you’re getting on.

Thanks, and happy researching!

Welcome to the Human Rights Project page!

From here you can access all the resources you will need to help you complete the Human Rights Young Researchers project. Remember, whilst you as a group of four get to choose the Human Rights-themed topic of your choice (so long as it is related to the United Kingdom), you do need to ensure your project fits in to the guidelines/format specified by Queen Mary University. The links at the top of the page will help ensure you do this.


The following links will also provide you with a general introduction to the subject, and you may find them useful in determining which topic you choose.

British Institute of Human Rights

Start here! The BIHR at Queen Mary University are who you are doing this project with, and they have their finger on the pulse of all the latest Human Rights issues in this country. Includes case studies of often-unreported Human Rights-related issues.

Human Rights Watch (UK) 

The Human Rights Watch is a global organisation of Human Rights professionals who report on human rights issues from around the globe. This page focuses on issues related to the UK.

United Nations Human Rights

The Human Rights Page of the UN

Happy researching and look forward to seeing which topic you choose; Human Rights is always a significant and relevant topic, so it is sure to be an interesting one!
