The Centre for Human Rights introduced a doctoral programme for students from African countries contributing to a research agenda entitled ‘Freedom from Violence in Africa’. The program aims to provide an advanced and specialised education and the availability of expertise in the field of countering violence in Africa, to those students from the continent who will be able to benefit most from the experience. These students are exploring issues related to the right to life and violence reduction, a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem of violence. The programme will aim at establishing a network of African scholars and practitioners with advanced capacity aimed at achieving progress towards Goal 16 of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda. .
