Advocacy and activism
The Centre for Human Rights Education is actively engaged in advocacy and activism across a range of human rights issues. Research undertaken at the Centre is drawn upon for engaged human rights practice. Members of the Centre work collaboratively with a diverse range of community and civil society groups, to support their work advocating for social justice. While human rights based issued are covered more broadly, the work at the Centre particularly focuses on:
- Refugees and asylum seekers
- Critical disability studies
- Gender, sexuality and human rights
- Rights to culture and knowledge
- Social justice and education.
The work of the Centre seeks to encourage public debate, discussion and deliberation on these human rights issues, and regularly engages with a range of media including online opinion pieces, public forums, public inquiries, and radio.
