Alexis Centre for Human Rights ACHR’s Essay Writing Competition [Lucknow Conclave]; Submit by June 20

Alexis Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) is a Centre for Excellence of Alexis Society. The Center is a collective of students and social activists dedicated to advance human rights in Indian sub-continent.

ACHR aims to take up research programmes which could be structured around the possibility of practical steps being taken at the ground level. Through base-building, capacity building, action oriented member working groups, and joint strategies for addressing rights violations, ACHR seeks to bring about meaningful change that raises the standard of accountability in ensuring economic, social, cultural, environmental, civil and political rights.

Thus, the research is not only directed to ascertain ground realities, build databases, etc., but also to set up networks in the country that can be activated to promote and protect human rights and combat violations of such rights.
