About us

The Centre for Human Rights Erlangen-Nürnberg (CHREN) consits of a team of researchers of the FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg from different faculties and disciplines. We provide scientific and practice-related research concerning the regional, national and international development of a human rights culture.

We research fundamental and currently pressing human rights topics. We organize events, sometimes concerning regional, sometimes concerning international matters and make the results of our research projects available to the open public. We offer advice to institutions, administrations, political organs on a municipal, state and federal level and international level, as well as to civil societies and the business world. Also, we cooperate with other scientific institutions, domestically and abroad, as well as with national and supranational organizations, as well as NGOs.
