2017-06-16 The Human Rights Centre of the University of Padova

It is a pleasure to be associated with the Human Rights Centre of the University of Padova and in particular with its Ph.D. programme that is run jointly with the Western Sydney University and a number of European universities. Recently a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Prof. Songcai Yang, Director of the Guangzhou University Institute of Human Rights and Prof. Marco Mascia, Director of the University of Padova Human Rights Centre. The ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ reinforces the partnership between the two Human Rights Centres in order to allow greater academic collaboration in the future.
