The Erik Castrén Institute of International Law and Human Rights (ECI) was established in 1998 within the Faculty of Law at the University of Helsinki. The institute was named after Erik Castrén (1904-1984), a former Professor of International Law at the University of Helsinki and a former member of the United Nations International Law Commission. The aim of the Institute is to promote research on public international law and human rights, from broad and often heterodox and trans-disciplinary perspectives.
