The reader will find comprehensive information on the donors, to whom the HRDA owes its very existence, and the administrative and academic staff whose competence and expertise have set high standards and given it world wide recognition.Above all, this publication recognises the work of the alumni whose achievements in the field are contributing to advancing human rights and democracy, primarily in Africa, but also in other parts of the world. They are the manifestation of a momentum to move Africa forward; the vindication of the idea that expertise and a common understanding are important tools in addressing today’s development challenges.

Please note: Please note: Alumni’s past and present professional positions are indicated, as the publication is intended to show both what alumni are doing and what they have done. The claim of making a contribution to advancing human rights in Africa is premised on work done, and so previous positions and experience are also acknowledged.

This publication is a team effort. Despite our best efforts, it is bound to contain inaccuracies and mistakes. As much as we tried to capture all the achievements by every alumni, we had to be selective. No doubt, there are ommissions and oversights, for which we apologise.

The bulk of this report was prepared by Davina Murden and David Ikpo.
