The Centre for Human Rights, the Centre for Child Law both at the Faculty of Law at the University of Pretoria, and the Dullah Omar Institute at the Faculty of Law at the University of the Western Cape successfully hosted the annual Advanced Human Rights Course on Children's Rights in Africa from 19 to 23 June 2023.

This course empowered professionals working with children across Africa, including government officials, civil society experts, legal practitioners, and academics, to effectively promote and protect children's rights.  With both in-person and online sessions, the course covered vital topics like the history of children's rights, implementation, enforcement, intersectionality, and strategic litigation. Renowned scholars and practitioners in the field of children's rights provided valuable insights throughout the course.
