Named after the late John Peters Humphrey, the principal drafter of the United Nation Declaration of Human Rights, the Centre’s mission is to advance the universal implementation of human rights through teaching and education of all people, with a specific focus on children and youth. A commitment to human rights, we envision, will move us towards a sustainable peace and human development, locally and internationally.
