Constitutional conventions: best practice

Syndicate content
The Rights Track is a podcast about human rights. In each episode, a leading analyst at the forefront of the latest critical thinking on human rights is interviewed by our podcast host, Professor Todd Landman, himself a human rights scholar and champion of the advancement of human rights understanding. This series of insightful, compelling and rigorous interviews with academics engaged in systematic human rights research aims to get the hard facts about the human rights challenges facing the world today and to get our thinking about human rights on the right track. Although our interviews focus on often complex research, they have been developed with a much wider audience in mind and we want them to be accessible to anyone with an interest in human rights. The podcast has been established with funding from the Nuffield Foundation
