At the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC), we have the chance to host talented and interesting scholars as Gordon F. Henderson Postdoctoral Fellows. Their work enriches our community and enhances our expertise in diverse research areas. Normally their appointments last just one year, but they remain a part of the HRREC family and we are always pleased to celebrate their successes!
