Global Campus scholars publish a wealth of innovative books and academic articles, which reflect the multi-disciplinarily and regional diversity of our network.

Annually the Global Campus Research Programme provides an opportunity to academics and students of the seven Regional Master’s programmes to join together in a research project of current significance. The Research programme focuses on international human rights topics analysed through the lenses of different regional perspectives. This activity is normally strongly connected to the Global Classroom, a yearly event gathering students and professors from the Global Campus and international experts. The insights and conclusions from the event are therefore integrated in the research and they further enrich the final findings.

In recent years, different publications were carried out within the master program “Human Rights and Democratization in the Caucasus” program. It should be noted that some of the publications were used at the European Commission as analyses and concrete policy for different countries were carried out on their bases.

Publications within the Global Campus Research Programme also include the peer-reviewed biannual e-journal “Global Campus Human Rights Journal”, which serves as a forum for rigorous scholarly analysis, critical commentary, and report on recent developments pertaining to human rights and democratisation globally. It is an open access journal published under the auspices of the Global Campus of Regional Human Rights Masters, and is supported financially by the European Union Commission.Please consult our publication by clicking the following links.

In 2019, in the frames of Global Campus Policy Briefs our first ever policy paper was published in cooperation with the Yerevan State University Gender and Leadership studies.The policy observatory pilot moves from the idea of enhancing the role of EIUC and the Global Campus Regional Programmes as convener and direct consultant to local, regional, national and international organizations, as well for providing guidance and expert opinion in response to urgent human rights issues to a broader primary and secondary audience.This policy paper addresses women’s and gender issues in Armenia, and especially the ways women human rights defenders react and respond to gender-based injustices.
