Transnational Human Rights, Crime and Security
Welcome to the Nathanson Centre
One of the Nathanson Centre's missions is to organize and sponsor events and tackle contemporary challenges in order to foster well-informed public debate. The centre also encourages the development of fundamental and theoretical research programs related to its mandate, as well as dialogue amongst participating researchers.
For the last two decades, the Nathanson Centre has been a world leader in the study of crime, human rights, and security, both in Canada and internationally. It acts as a hub for a wide constellation of policy-oriented and more theoretically-minded Osgoode and York researchers, as well as a steady flow of visiting scholars, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students, working on these crucial social issues. It is unique in that there is no other research centre working at the intersection of these themes, with a transnational focus, either in Canada or abroad.
