The Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria (Centre) is the regional headquarters of Global Campus Africa and presents the masters in Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa (HRDA) together with 12 partner universities from across Africa. The Centre is one of seven (soon to be eight) regional hubs of the Global Campus of Human Rights, which each presents a masters programme in partnerships with universities in different regions of the world.
The Global Campus of Human Rights annual Report 2022 celebrates not only the achievements of the seven regional Global Campus Master’s programmes in human rights around the world but also the many other activities (research, professional training, advocacy, emergency support, awareness raising, …). The Global Campus of Human Rights has developed at its HQ in Venice, in one of ‘our regions’ - Africa, Arab World, Asia-Pacific, Caucasus, Europe, Latin America-Caribbean, South East Europe - or virtually.
The Report tells the story of how The Global Campus of Human Rights organised a conference on mental health designed and led by children and adolescents; confronted human rights scepticism with a new podcast series; launched a training programme for young people to fight mis- and disinformation; supported Afghan human rights defenders; assisted Ukrainian and Myanmarese academics and students; empowered visual media professionals; trained human rights defenders, professionals and civil servants; offered niche MOOCs; and celebrated our incredible Alumni, one of which was murdered because of his activism. All these activities have served the purpose of making our human rights education not only top-notch but also transformational.
