RESEARCH FRAMEWORK

The FSCHR has the potential to stimulate critical scholarship in the field of human rights through its postgraduate and research programme. This is reflected in the mission of the Research Division to deepen the study of human rights and further critical human rights praxes by:

  1. Conducting research on the promotion, protection, and monitoring of human rights institutionally, nationally, and internationally.
  2. Generating comparative and international research initiatives on the scholarship of human rights within various socio-political contexts.
  3. Develop novel methodologies in which traditional human rights issues can be complemented by inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches.
  4. Pursue scholarship and interventions on human rights issues in university contexts and within associated communities.
