On Sunday, 28 March, Christof Heyns suddenly and unexpectedly passed away during a hike in his native country South Africa. As founder of the Human Rights Centre at the University of Pretoria and the African Master in Human Rights and Democratisation, he was one of the pioneers and architects of the Global Campus of Human Rights.
Come investire in modo migliore nel futuro se non attraverso le possibilità di crescita e conoscenza date dalle università e dai corsi di alta formazione?
La formazione universitaria potrebbe essere in particolare una chiave per guardare allo sviluppo futuro della città di Venezia che ora sta inaugurando la celebrazione per i suoi 1600 anni.
Per riflettere su questi temi il Global Campus of Human Rights ha organizzato uno spazio di discussione sul futuro possibile a Venezia ospitando le online “Global Campus of Human Rights Conversations”.
The Centre for Human Rights (Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria), together with the Global Campus of Human Rights, is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of the previous Director of the Centre,Professor Christof Heyns. His death is an incredible loss, and he will be truly missed by us and so many others across the world.
Following the success of the second online Global Campus of Human Rights Conversation, the Global Campus of Human Rights published the second edition of its seasonal Magazine (both in English and Italian).
In an unprecedentedly challenging year, both for human rights and for us, the Global Campus embraced — and strengthened — its ties as a global network of almost 100 universities, proving that collaborative efforts can take us further.
