Zimbabwe: Summer School on Human Rights

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute in Harare and five academic partner universities run the 2022 Summer School on Human Rights together.

During two weeks, students get together at the College of Business, Peace, Leadership, and Governance at Africa University in Mutare, to participate in the Summer School.

The Summer School prepares students and aims to increase opportunities for students to study human rights at academic institutions.

During the Summer School, students develop their skills to identify international, regional and national human rights standards as potentially applicable to a concrete given case. They also get to enhance their capacity to argue how to potentially implement those rights in relation to a practical case.

Who joins?

The students are law students and five of them are already doing Masters in Human Rights.

Academic staff affiliated to the five academic partner institutions under the RWI Zimbabwe Human Rights Capacity Development Programme and practitioners from relevant stakeholders and public institutions facilitate the different learning components of the Summer School that takes place between 28 November- 9 December 2022.

The Summer School is carried out within the Zimbabwe Human Rights Capacity Development Programme, with financial support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
