HUMAN RIGHTS ARE EVERY HUMAN’S RIGHTS: CENTRE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
Our Outlook: Vision and Objectives
One may survive under oppression, labour, destitution or melancholy without crumbling- but the moment one’s basic human rights are under threat, it doesn’t take any predicament to make their world crumble.
With an endeavour to bring the discussion of Human Rights to the forefront, to provide an open forum and relief measures along with constant learning, the Centre for Human Rights at SLS-H was conceptualized and established in 2017 with the motto, “Towards an Amicable Tomorrow.”
The Centre is actively committed to exploring the study of the ongoing and possible Human Rights crisis, dispense knowledge about the ones afflicted due to such crisis, and come up with solutions to rectify as well as set precedents for the future. Alongside fulfilling these objectives, great emphasis is also laid on the development of its student members both personally and professionally, in terms of providing them with problem-related, management, and other life skills necessary to make a mark on the world’s view towards Human Rights.
Our Venture: Events and Initiatives
To make impactful contributions towards ongoing issues, one must keep abreast with the related updates and garner all knowledge possible from varied sources and expert opinions.
The Centre has conducted a plethora of events post-inception, exploring many areas of Human Rights. A novel initiative to focus on contemporary legal issues in conducting bi-weekly deliberations with field leaders. Legislations like the POCSO Act, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Bill, issues like the Kerala Floods, Human Trafficking, and many such topics are regularly discussed with questions, criticisms, and conclusions.
On a larger scale, the National flagship event of the Centre, CONVERSE, brings together luminaries, scholars, and students across the country to a common platform for the exchange of thoughts, scholarly work, and constructive discussion. Issues such as Women and Human Rights, Business and Human Rights, Uniform Civil Code, etc. have been the central theme of the conferences and seminars organized by the Centre at the National Level. Significant contributions in the form of research from the experts and students culminate in the form of published books and conference proceedings paving a way for fresh insights from diverse perspectives.
Other events like lecture discussions, competitions, etc., are regularly conducted by the Centre to ensure that members understand the ground realities, harsh conditions, and atrocities suffered by victims every day and also to lend a helping hand wherever possible.
Our Aspiration: Thoughts and Viewpoints
A drive from within, paves the way to strive for success– it is an idea that resonates with the Centre’s members. It is their unified belief of wanting to learn, wishing to aid, willing to work and zeal to create awareness that drives them towards an undying urge to perform, irrespective of the time, place, or condition.
Motivation, innovation, consideration, and dedication are the principles behind the Centre’s strong work ethic and constant efforts. Empathy, not sympathy, aid not disregard, solve not discuss and action, not reaction, is the unanimous approach and are the primary values inculcated to make members individuals capable of achieving laurels for their work in future.
With the end goal to become a voice for the unvoiced, the Centre’s ideology can best be summed up as- possibilities create abilities, hardships produce fight, rekindled desire and struggle go a long way, the end a victorious fight for what’s right. The Centre looks forward to contributing in the best way possible to protect the Human Rights of the people and strives to achieve its desired goals and objectives with renewed energy and vigour each day.
