The Fellowship Programme was initiated in September 2016 in collaboration with the American Bar Association–Rule of Law Initiative. The Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for young individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the human rights and justice field in their early career or during their undergraduate degree.
The fellow is housed for a period of six – twelve months at the Centre. During this time, the fellow is expected to work on:

(i) a particular area of interest to contribute to the broader goals of the Centre; and

(ii) assist in running the Centre.

The fellow may be involved in a number of activities such as teaching components of the clinical programs, devising relevant campaigns for the Centre, interacting with government, non-government and international stakeholders to develop and support the work of the Centre.

The Fellowship is designed to provide an enriching environment that promotes initiative taking to ensure our fellows can transform into young, independent leaders. At the end of the Fellowship, the fellows should have gained specific knowledge in their area of expertise, along with an understanding of the national and international human rights systems. The Programme also serves as a launchpad to start your own human rights project by allowing fellows the opportunity to build strategic relationships with local and international organizations and partners.
