Researchers from the Political Studies Department at the University of the Western Cape will report on a workshop held in August at UWC titled, Protecting Universities, Protecting Democracy: Universities as Sites of Protection and Activism. In this workshop, academics, student leaders and activists met for three days to share experience and knowledge and to consider the protective role of African universities in supporting human rights defenders on the continent. The presenters will also discuss the development of an African Human Rights Hub.
