 This theme groups research related
to human rights and the law, from the interaction between research, advocacy and the use of courts to protect children, to international law on armed conflict and human rights, migration and forced displacement, as well as constitution- building in Africa. UP houses several strong legal research entities, with
three featured here – the Centre for Child Law, the Centre for Human Rights, and the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa, each with a distinct contribution to the theme on human rights. Texts on a documentary film and exhibition, as well as a theatre performance, add further dimensions to understanding our ‘apartheid afterlives’ and rights.
