The Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria is seeking a new (second) Assistant Director

19 May 2017 - The Centre for Human Rights earlier this year went though the process of recruiting a new Director, after the current Director's second term in that position had come to an end. However, the University’s selection committee did not shortlist any of the applicants.

The University Management subsequently decided that the University would fund a permanent position in the Centre of an Assistant Director, if the incumbent Director agrees to serve for another term. The Director (Frans Viljoen) happily agreed, and is looking forward to contribute further to advance the Centre’s vision.

We are now embarking on a process of recruiting a suitable person for the permanent full-time position of Assistant Director in the Centre.

This new position will be in addition to that of the current position of Assistant Director, which is funded by the Centre from external funds (held by Norman Taku). These developments reflect the Centre's thematic and institutional growth over thirty years.

Statement by the Gender Unit, Centre for Human Rights on the occasion of the 60th Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights held at the Palais des Congres, Niamey, Niger from the 8 May to 22 May 2017

19 May 2017 - Part of the work we do at the Gender Unit, Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria is to support the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Women in Africa especially with respect to the popularization as well as the implementation of the Maputo Protocol across Africa

One area of such support is specifically, with regards to state reporting as well as popularising the 2009 reporting guidelines on the Maputo Protocol.

We therefore make 4 brief interventions in this regard.

First, with regards to the ratification and domestication of the Maputo Protocol in the continent

The Centre for Human Rights notes that despite some progress made in the protection and promotion of women’s human rights since the adoption of the Maputo Protocol in 2003; women and girl children across Africa continue to experience increased violations and discriminations. This includes all forms of violence against women, child marriages, harmful practices, Female Genital Mutilation and so on. As we may know, these violations many times have significant negative physical, psychological and emotional consequences on the lives of African women and girl children and in extreme cases result in their deaths.

In light of the above therefore, the Centre for Human Rights would like to strongly urge the 16 African states yet to sign and/ or ratify the Protocol to urgently do so and ensure its domestication where applicable in their respective countries. In particular, while we commend the government of Niger for hosting the 60th Ordinary Session and its warm hospitality, we join the call for the government of Niger to urgently ratify and domesticate the Maputo Protocol. This we believe would serve as a fundamental and significant step in concrete efforts to ensure the promotion and protection of the rights of its women.

Renowned critical legal scholar Makau Mutua identifies steps to decolonise university curricula

12 May 2017 - In 2015, a call reverberated through South African universities. It started at Wits, moved to UCT and then to most campuses in the country. Thousands of students, at nearly every institution of higher education, demanded the decolonisation of university curricula and the radical transformation of academic spaces. This resulted in a movement towards the rejection of Eurocentric systems of knowledge and the advancement of African approaches and philosophies.

To engage further on the issue of a decolonised education model, the Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, hosted a lunch lecture by renowned critical legal scholar Professor Makau Mutua. Prof Mutua teaches law at the SUNY Buffalo Law School, State University of New York, in the United States of America (USA). The lecture on 'Decolonising the university curriculum' provided an opportunity for critical reflection on South Africa’s racial and political past, its impact on tertiary education and the way forward.

Centre for Human Rights laments continuing human rights violations in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon

10 May 2017 - Over the past six months, the English-speaking part of Cameroon has experienced serious repression and continuous human rights violations. The crisis erupted in October 2016, following a series of sit-in strikes and non-violent actions initiated by common law lawyers and teachers’ trade unions in protest against the government’s policy of assimilation through the imposition of the civil law judges to preside over cases in common law courts and French-speaking teachers to teach in English schools. This policy seems designed to systematically wipe out the legal and education systems of the peoples of Southern Cameroons.

The government’s lethal response to the strikes and protest actions led to the death of at least 8 protesters on 8 December 2016, and subsequent extra-judicial killings, disappearances, rape, maiming, torture and other forms of degrading and inhumane treatment. Civil society organisations coordinating the strikes and protest actions were banned on 17 January 2017.  Leaders, including Justice Ayah Paul Abine (Supreme Court Judge), Dr Felix Agbor Balla (prominent international human rights lawyer), Dr Neba Fontem (a university lecturer), Mr Mancho Bibixy (a civil rights activists), and hundreds of other activists and protesters were arrested and transferred to the nation’s capital, Yaoundé (a civil law jurisdiction). They are currently being tried in a military court on charges of terrorism, which carries a death penalty if found guilty. These actions violate the right to fair trial. This is happening in spite of the African Commissions’ ruling in the Kelvin Gunme v Cameroon (para 215(1)(ii)) forbidding the transfer of accused persons from the English-speaking part to be tried in the French-speaking part of the country.
