The faculty of law has recently established a Human Rights Centre. The centre will also become a hub of knowledge and expertise for external project work with various actors including government institutions, civil society organizations and academic institutions. The faculty engaged for the past 10 years in teaching various subjects in human rights law at the postgraduate and undergraduate level. It further developed human rights expertise through research, as well as through capacity-building and training activities for external stakeholders – e.g. legal practitioners, civil society organisations.
The faculty of law has implemented many projects in the past with many organizations and civil society groups such as a project undertaken in cooperation with REDRESS and the Sudan Human Rights Monitor which culminated in issuing a comprehensive study on ‘Constitutional Protection of Human Rights in Sudan’ published January 2014. The faculty of law conducted workshops with French Universities in November 2013 on ‘protection of Child Soldiers in African in post conflict environments. A book was published by La’armartan I France. The faculty has a partnership agreement with the University of Nottingham Human Rights law Centre and some activities were implemented. The faculty of law is currently conducting a research with UNHCR on statelessness and a study will be published in early 2015. The faculty also organized training for judges, prosecutors and lawyers in access to justice for women as part of a partnership agreement with UN Women in 2011.
