This cluster comprises a number of projects that examine the regulatory dimensions of international and national human rights standards. These projects include the impact of international criminal law in the Middle East, the operation of rituals and ritualism in the international human rights system, the use of human rights norms by civil society groups, the implementation of human rights treaties in particular national contexts and the development of new human rights principles and arenas. Researchers in the cluster have paid particular attention to the deployment of human rights vocabularies in the Asia-Pacific region.
