Welcome to HURIPEC
The Human Rights and Peace Centre (HURIPEC), a semi-autonomous department under the School of Law was set up by Makerere University in 1993, as the first human rights centre of its kind 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.
