Established in 1982, INTERIGHTS works to promote respect for human rights through the use of law. We achieve this through a range of activities: strategic litigation through co-representation, legal support to applicants and third party interventions before international, regional, and national human rights courts and bodies; advising lawyers on the use of international and comparative human rights law before their domestic courts; building capacity through litigation partnerships, targeted training activities and internships; and through the dissemination of legal information. Thematically, our priorities are equality, security and the rule of law (including counter-terrorism), and economic and social rights (ESR). INTERIGHTS currently focuses its activities in Africa, the Commonwealth, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
The precise nature of activities will depend on organisational and programme priorities at the time of the placement; however, it is likely that the main areas in which experience will be offered will include:
Legal research on international and comparative human rights law and practice relating to Trans Rights to support the preparation of briefs before domestic courts and the European Court of Human Rights;
Preparation of materials for INTERIGHTS’ training workshops on Trans Rights;
Assistance on INTERIGHTS’ publications on Trans Rights;
Where possible, attendance at meetings with human rights practitioners, lectures, or visits to other international / national human rights organisations based in London.
