This body was established and registered under the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC), relying on the provision of article chapter 2(f) of the IHRC charter signed on 23rd December 2003 at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva. The IHRC Human Rights Education Federation is for accreditation of training in Human Rights Education activities in line with the provision of the IHRC charter. However, the IHRC Human Rights Education Federation is governed by its own statutes and regulations, but remains an integral of the IHRC.
It is also operated as an autonomous college and it selects its own students both undergraduate and postgraduate students through the IHRC Coordinators/Special Envoys duly appointed by the IHRC Geneva office. As at today, the IHRC Human Rights Education Federation, is among the leading and independent associations providing accreditation, certifications and training programs across many industry sectors to complement the continuing educational and professional development policies of professional institutes and academic bodies. The accreditation and certification that this body provides are primarily focused to give recognition, credibility and to acknowledge that the accredited institution provides high academic status of international repute.
Accreditation with IHRC Human Rights Education Federation provides an opportunity to the academic institutions and education providers to demonstrate their abilities and commitment to maintaining their programs’ quality and to ensure that their programs are known for meeting the required professional academic level and meet International quality standards set by International Human Rights Diplomats. The IHRC is greatly desirous that it ensures the providers of continuing education and training in Human Rights disciplines have the ability to provide high-quality instruction by following the IHRC Human Rights Education Federation Standards for continuing education and training programs through a rigorous accreditation process.
The conditions of the IHRC Human Rights Education Federation for accreditation leave no one in doubt that the educational institution whose Human Rights courses gets accreditation from the IHRC has gained both professionalism and recognition, with the best international standards. Indeed the accreditation from the IHRC secures a status that tells the world that the accredited institution passed through a rigorous accreditation application and review process, involving extensive hands-on evaluation and verification exercises.
The Department of Legal Studies provides high quality advanced legal education and education in human rights, comparative constitutional law, and international business law. Its programs are among the finest enabling students to obtain a solid grounding in fundamental legal concepts in civil law and common law systems and to develop unique skills in comparative analysis. Our students are encouraged to see complex legal and social problems in their broader context and seek solutions across continents and disciplines.
We also provide an opportunity for students to become familiar with Therapeutic Jurisprudence which is an interdisciplinary field of philosophy and practice that examines the therapeutic and anti-therapeutic properties of laws and public policies, legal and dispute resolution systems, and legal institutions. It values psychologically healthy outcomes in legal disputes and transactions, without claiming exclusivity in terms of policy objectives.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4: specifically targets quality education and Aesthetic Education which incorporates the arts across the curriculum in a way that fosters a heightened awareness of and an appreciation for all that touches our lives. It is a way of regaining touch with the process of learning something new, of being introduced to a medium never known in a particular way before.
Traditionally we focus most of our attention on linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligence. However, Multiple Intelligence studies have shown that we should also place equal attention on individuals who show gifts in the other intelligences: the artists, architects, musicians, naturalists, designers, dancers and so on.
