Centre for Human Rights


The Centre for Human Rights at Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad was established in the year 2017 with an objective to develop a holistic understanding of the nature and dynamics and the angularities of Human Rights and their violations and various modes of protecting these rights. The Centre aims to spread awareness among the masses about human rights violations and take active measures to protect them. The Centre focuses on conceptualizing several laws, policies, and processes that address or lead to violation of human rights. In this endeavour, the Centre has been instrumental in collaborating with various universities such as Edinboro University, USA, and conducting various activities such as providing legal aid to Rohingya Refugees in Hyderabad. It has also organized different competitions, bi-weekly discussions on contemporary legal issues concerning human rights, and National Seminars and Conferences graced by eminent personalities to collate new ideas and contribute in the best possible manner to the global pool of knowledge on Human Rights. The Centre also aims to undertake research projects at both, theoretical and empirical levels with a holistic perspective of policy implications on various themes to develop a better understanding of the emerging issues in the global regime of Human Rights and formulate measures and policies to resolve the same.
