The Centre for Research on Human Rights (CRHR), UWSL is a specialized Centre, established by Unitedworld School of Law, Karnavati University, to stimulate discussions on the concept of human rights and how the law can be used in the service of human rights.

This work has been supported by an active and sensitive judiciary, which has safeguarded and strengthened existing civil and political rights as well as meaningfully expanded the notion of rights to including basic economic and social entitlements. Notwithstanding the progress made, human rights violations continue to be reported demonstrating the shortfalls in the existing system.
