About this Course

Rwandan refugees returning from Goma, Zaire.

Years of mass violations and authoritarian rule seriously damage the relationship between citizens and the state. Rebuilding this relationship requires the government to offer a message of care and accept responsibility for failing in its primary duty to protect its citizens against serious human rights violations.

This is even more important when state agents have been involved as perpetrators of those violations. A key way to fulfil this duty is to take effective steps that help repair the lives of victims and their families (reparations).


The course aims to increase student’s understanding of victims support and reparation. As well as building the capacity of those working to advance human rights in the region, it will also allow participants to share their experiences around human rights accountability through online platforms.
