Human Rights under Pressure – Ethics, Law and Politics is an international, interdisciplinary doctoral and postdoctoral study and research training group under the joint auspices of Freie Universität Berlin and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Currently seven graduate students in Berlin and seven in Jerusalem are working toward their doctorate, and two postdoctoral research fellows are also involved in the interdisciplinary program.

The range of subjects includes the humanities and social sciences, philosophy, law, and history. At the end of their training, the students receive a joint PhD from both universities.

The project is funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin and the German Research Foundation (DFG). Another partner is the Human Rights Center at the University of Potsdam.
