We dream of an Africa where every child, woman and man can read and write, where universal human rights education means exactly that. We envision an Africa where every child, woman and man understands his or her rights and can claim it
The Centre’s mission is to support a rights-based approach to education in Africa by creating, storing and distributing Human Rights Education (HRE) resources via electronic and print media. We also produce news, entertainment, in-depth documentaries, expert analysis, commentary, interviews, reports and training for the media.
Tasked with producing the most innovative work in the field, the unit addresses important gaps in scholarship and provides analysis of the work of the AU.

Human rights are universal, that is, they are the same for all human beings in every country. They are inalienable, indivisible and interdependent, that is, they cannot be taken away – ever; all rights are equally important and they are complementary, for instance the right to participate in government and in free elections depends on freedom of speech.
The Archive for AU Studies and Politics researches and studies the history of the AU. We work in collaboration with the Institute of AU Studies. Interested readers will profit from an enormous number of documents, modern media, and a library containing more than xxx publications on politics of the AU and its contemporary history.
