Činnost Centra pro lidská práva a demokracii zajišťuje tým odborníků, kteří působí v akademických, justičních a dalších institucích v rámci ČR. Každý z nich zajišťuje jeden z tematických panelů, kterým se Centrum zabývá, a do kterých je rozdělena i pozornost měsíčního Bulletinu Centra. Těmito oblastmi jsou mezinárodní trestní spravedlnost, evropský systém ochrany lidských práv, mezinárodní politika a lidská práva a také Česká republika a lidská práva.

Zapsanými členy Centra jsou Jan Lhotský, Hubert Smekal, Linda Janků a Lucie Nechvátalová. Náš tým odborníků je však širší a níže uvádíme oblasti jejich expertizy a odpovědnosti.
