Exemplifying this process of institution-building, the Centre-based Master’s in Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa (HRDA) marked 20 years of continuous human rights education on the continent. It is through the wide-ranging contributions of the 563 graduates of this programme that the Centre has left its clearest fingerprint on the continent. This milestone was made possible by productive partnership with law schools across the continent, together with great dedication of Centre staff over two decades. A number of events, organised to coincide with the graduation of the HRDA Class of 2019, brought together graduates from across year groups and countries.
