Centre for Human Rights Education
The Centre for Human Rights Education (CHRE) provides a focal point for research, teaching and scholarly activity in the area of human rights education. In this context, education is understood in its broadest sense, including community education, raising awareness, promoting understanding and debate around human rights issues, and implementing human rights principles in a range of occupations, as well as education in formal settings of schools and universities.
The Centre is multi-disciplinary. Unlike other human rights centres, it is not located within a Law Faculty, but within the Humanities Faculty of the University. It draws on scholarship, research and expertise from a variety of disciplines and professions, including philosophy, political science, sociology, education, health sciences, social work, law, international relations, psychology, anthropology, business and media studies.
