Center for Human Rights

The School of Law and Political Sciences of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik created the « Human Rights Center » in 2012, which seeks to strengthen the role of civil society in promoting human rights and the implementation of democratic reforms.

The Human Rights Center is committed to:
  • Endorsing a culture of human rights among students and citizens;
  • Promoting free legal services and assistance to vulnerable cases relating to human rights;
  • Developing a new policy of reforms and recommendations for human rights.

The Human Rights Center brings together several units of research in several fields related to legal and socio-political issues.

These different research units meet at more than one level, thus allowing a better coordination among the various departments of the School of Law and Political Sciences.

The research units are as follows:
  • Human rights
  • Law religious in third world countries
  • Lebanese citizenship
  • Civil society
  • The Lebanese Constitution
  • Thematic summer schools

Aware of the importance of human rights and the significant role of the Center, the USEK School of Law and Political Sciences speaks to many areas of society:
  • Students and human rights activists (MENA region) who constitute the main target of this project;
  • Local and regional non-governmental organizations who may constitute a mass lobby to promote human rights education;
  • Unions and the Bar Association who are able to gradually spread this culture by defending more human rights cases;
  • Police and judicial officials who have the mission of protecting human rights; and victims of violations against human rights.
