Centre for the Study of Human Rights, University of Colombo [CSHR] Charity Profile
The CSHR was established in 1991 as a result of the violence in the late 1980s. The aim of the Centre was to provide the public with Human Rights awareness and remedies to the violation of rights. Since then, the CSHR has expanded its reach both within the university community and the wider community in Human Rights education and training. The need for awareness, education and training in the field of Human Rights, as well as for ongoing research in this area has been identified by the CSHR. The Centre therefore, continues in its efforts towards establishing a culture of respect for Human Rights in Sri Lanka.
