Human Rights/Refugees

  • Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria.
  • The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation CSVR is a South African non-governmental organisation. Since its inception in 1989, the CSVR has been dedicated to making a meaningful contribution to peaceful and fundamental transformation in South Africa and hence, in the Southern African region.
  • Lawyers for Human Rights non-governmental organisation that strives to promote, uphold and strenghthen human rights. The organisation has had a proud history since its inception in 1979 of fighting oppression and the abuse of human rights in South Africa. Almost all of the staff at the head office in Pretoria and its regional offices were active participants in voter education and monitoring in the run up to the historic 1994 elections.
  • The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) The Human Rights Commission was established in 1995 in terms of the Human Rights Commission Act, No 54/1994 which was signed into law by the President on 24 November 1994. The interim Constitution of 1993 stated that there shall be a Human Rights Commission. The existence of the Commission is evidence of the new democratic republic's commitment to reverse the wrongs of the apartheid past and to assure all South Africans of protection under the law. The interim Constitution therefore marked a radical break with the past, and the final Constitution of 1996 has cemented the Commission as a permanent statutory body set up by parliament.
