In collaboration with the law schools of University of Hargeisa and Amoud University in Borama, Human Rights Centre held public lectures for law students on the freedom of media.
The aim of the lectures was to increase the awareness of the students on the concept of freedom of media and its relations with development and democracy.
The students actively participated in a dynamic way, asking questions and making suggestions.
The dean of the College of Law at the University of Hargeisa, Mohamoud Hussein Farah gave the lecture in Hargeisa while the associate dean of the Faculty of Law of Amoud University and lecturer Sheikh Ali gave lectures at Borama.
These lectures are part of new initiatives by Human Rights Centre to improve its relations and cooperation with the law schools and students for the purpose of having a stronger society that collectively advocates for human rights in Somaliland.
“I am impressed by the level of engagement and commitment of the students,” the chairperson of Human Rights Centre, Guleid Ahmed Jama, said.
“Human rights can be protected if we have committed and passionate volunteers who stand for human rights. Students are the best people to do that:” he added.
International Media Support, a partner with Human Rights Centre, helped the Centre to do the lectures.
