The President of the Republic of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, in his condolence message to the people of Kenya following the attack on Garissa University, said the terrorism threat by extremist forces is one of the most urgent problems facing our region. He pointed out that we all need to work together to move forward the frontiers of peace and eliminate terrorism from our midst. “May this horrendous massacre of our children not break our spirit in the struggle against terrorism and extremism but, instead, strengthen our resolve even further and bring us closer together,” he stated.
In solidarity with Garissa University and the People of Kenya; the M.A. Peace and Conflict Studies Programme, Department of Religion and Peace Studies is organising a public dialogue aimed at initiating research and academic thinking to develop strategies to strengthen the frontiers of peace, prevent crime, terrorism and insurgency.

The students of B.A. Ethics and Human Rights under their association Makerere University Ethics and Human Rights Association (MUEHRA), in partnership with the Global Compact Network and Net Impact Uganda shall launch the 2nd Annual Human Rights Expo tomorrow, 27th March, 2015 at 2:00pm in the University Main Hall. The Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Hon. Kahinda Otafiire, shall preside over the event. The Expo is on in the former Faculty of Arts Quadrangle.
The Annual Makerere University Human Rights Expo (MUHREX) is a University flagship event dedicated towards promoting Human Rights Awareness (sensitization) among students, academia and the general public. This innovative, practical and holistic approach to human rights promotion includes various Human Rights Open Space Forums, Exhibition, Book Fair, Internship & Career Forum, Fish Bowl Challenge, and the Human Right Film Festival. By moving the discussion of human rights, slightly away from theory to practice (action), the Expo greatly contributes towards enhancing academic-practitioner collaboration, fosters interdisciplinary dialogue, cultivates critical thinking on different human rights issues and also exposes students to various local and international institutions involved in the promotion and protection of human rights within the country.
