Human Rights and Peace Center

The Human Rights and Peace Center (HURIPEC ) was established under the Faculty of Law in Makerere University in 1993, as the first human rights center of its kind in in Sub-saharan Africa. Although several human rights-related subjects were already being taught at the Faculty of Law, HURIPEC was established solely to foster on teaching, research and activism on human rights and peace issues at the University. Since that time, not only has the number of subjects in the area expanded considerably, but so to have the range of activities being pursued.
