Invitation to the Launch of the Joint Research Project “Emancipatory Human Rights”


To a Symposium on the Occasion of Launching the Joint Research Project “Emancipatory Human Rights”

held at Birzeit University (Hall 234 in the annex building of the Institute of Law) and online

Wednesday, 17 April 2024


Muwatin Institute for Democracy and Human Rights in cooperation with the University of Antwerp (Belgium) launches the research project “Emancipatory Human Rights”. The project benefits from support provided by the Belgian government through the Belgian Development Agency- Enabel. The research project aims to investigate ways to ensure human rights are used exclusively for emancipation, and to examine the possibilities of protecting human rights from colonial utilization.

The project is based on a vision of the organic nature of the emancipatory knowledge production. For this purpose, the project was designed to provide a central role for youth in the research process, as well as to accommodate for the broadest possible communal contribution.

We will begin the project with an inaugural event held on Prisoner's Day, Wednesday, April 17, 2024 between 13:00 and 17:00, at Birzeit University campus, Hall 234 in the annex building of the Institute of Law.
