ISLAND RIGHTS INITIATIVE TO JOIN INTERDISCIPLINARY CENTRE FOR LAW, ALTERNATIVE AND INNOVATIVE METHODS (ICLAIM)

 

The Island Rights Initiative (IRI) and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Alternative and Innovative Methods (ICLAIM) are delighted to announce their new partnership. 

ICLAIM was established in 2017 by Founders and Directors Prof. Stephanie Laulhe Shaelou and Dr. Lida Pitsillidou and has been expanding ever since, winning the 2020 European Citizen Prize from the European Parliament in 2021. It is a non-for-profit research organisation based in Cyprus but with international reach, that envisions a society where citizens are empowered individually and collectively and enjoy access to social justice. Its activities underpinned by high quality research and impact evolve around societal issues accompanied by conflict and dispute resolution tools, upholding human rights and the Rule of Law from grassroot to supranational levels.

IRI was established in 2017 by Founder and Director, Dr. Susie Alegre to support governments, communities and civil society in small island jurisdictions to protect and promote human rights, democratic institutions and the rule of law.  With Associates from small islands around the world, from the Pacific, Indian Ocean, Europe and the Caribbean, IRI brings a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges of small islands along with high level expertise in international and comparative law and experience in international relations.

The driving force of projects at ICLAIM, like Island Rights Initiative, is to create big changes through innovative approaches that have impact far beyond their shores.  The Isle of Man was the first place in the world to give women the vote in national elections in 1881.  And small island coalitions are driving the international law agenda around climate change.  As IRI and ICLAIM combine their expertise, they look forward to supporting citizens, civil society and policy makers in small islands around the world in taking innovative approaches to law and human rights that may ripple around the world.
