It is our mission to deepen the study of human rights and further critical human rights praxes.


The key objectives of the centre are as follows:

  1. Conduct research on the promotion, protection, and monitoring of human rights institutionally, nationally, and internationally.


  2. Generate 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 (broadly) in university contexts and widely within associated communities.


  5. Pursue a niche agenda to foster and promote a culture of renewed human rights education and advocacy through praxis, formal and informal education.


  6. Develop human rights cultures institutionally and engage communities on the promotion and protection of human rights, locally and elsewhere.
