The Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) is the home base of a vibrant, interdisciplinary and international group of researchers, lecturers, and PhD students. SIM staff participates in key research programmes of the School of Law and of Utrecht University. Transitional justice, regional human rights mechanisms, human rights protection during and after conflict, and the interplay between human rights and international and EU law are some of our fields of expertise. SIM Fellows are researchers within the School of Law with whom SIM closely cooperates.
