The NIHR entered into an agreement with NHRC to establish the National Human Rights Commission’s Chair on Human Rights at NLSIU in November 1998. The Chair envisages an ambitious three-pronged programme of human rights promotion, which largely coincides with the mandate of the NIHR and includes the following :
- Human Rights Education, which includes, preparation of teaching materials, curriculum preparation and such other related activities ;
- Research and publications of human rights issues ;
- Documentation of human rights materials.
