#MakeChangeHappen this Human Rights Day (10th December)

Press release issued: 9 December 2016

From improving the conditions of people deprived of their liberty and advising civil society organisations, and governments on the implementation of human rights law, the Human Rights Implementation Centre facilitates change on the ground.

Drawing upon its work with the United Nations, the African Commission and Court on Human and Peoples' Rights, the Council of Europe and others, the HRIC also provides opportunities for students to get involved. For example, the Human Rights Law Clinic enables students to provide pro bono support to these organisations.
