The Center for Human Rights Studies (CHR), one of the constituent units of the College of Law and Governance Studies, is a human rights institute engaged in teaching, research and community services in an interdisciplinary setting. Initially, the program was designed as a joint program in Peace, Federalism and Human Rights in collaboration with the Center for Federal Studies and the Institute of Peace and Security Studies. Since its launch in 2011, the Center enrolled 11 PhD students (in three rounds) who are now at various levels of doctoral studies.
In meeting with the spirit of Article 66 of the AAU Senate Legislation, the Center for Human Rights has reorganized the PhD program. The newly redeveloped program was launched in 2017.
