Research clusters

The clusters below reflect common groupings of interest and seek to facilitate interaction among network members. Clusters have supported a range of activities around particular themes and supported the ongoing development of partnerships.  The clusters are intentionally broad in order to be as inclusive as possible and to facilitate interaction among a wide group of people. There is also scope to join and work across clusters where applicable.

You can find out more about our clusters and their convenors and activities by clicking on the links below:

We are always happy to hear suggestions to enhance our clusters and to respond to new issues and challenges. If you would like to join  the network, a cluster, or suggest ways to enhance these groupings, please download and complete the GHRN membership form and send it to our Network Convenor, Dr Vikki Turbine at 

GHRN membership restrictions
The initial focus of the Glasgow Human Rights Network (GHRN) is to forge links with Knowledge Exchange partners, members of the public and other institutions.  This is to ensure we have a core group in Scotland first, before we branch out our membership to the rest of the UK/world.  If you are outside Scotland, we are happy to hold your details on file and contact you at a later date when membership is extended.
