The Castan Centre for Human Rights Law is a research, education and policy centre within the Law Faculty at Monash University. It seeks to promote and protect human rights through the generation and dissemination of public scholarship in international and domestic human rights law.
In pursuit of this mission, the Centre brings the work of human rights scholars, practitioners and advocates from a wide range of disciplines together in the Centre’s key activities of research, teaching, public education (lectures, seminars, conferences, speeches, media presentations, etc), applied research, advice work and consultancies.
The centre is named after Ron Castan AM QC (1939-1999), who was a passionate advocate for the recognition and protection of human rights and a distinguished member of the Victorian Bar.
