Centre for Citizenship, Development and Human Rights



The Centre for Citizenship Development and Human Rights aims to make a major contribution to socio-political theory, analysis and practice aimed at supporting human rights, citizenship, third sector organisations and democracy. This will be achieved through research, publications, conferences, seminars, public debate, training and consultancies.

We will undertake and support research aimed at developing a distinctive and politically relevant contemporary analysis of issues in civil society.

We will encourage and support our members to take a major role in theory, research and practice concerned with citizenship, development and human rights.
