Friday December 14, 2012 11:49:46 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Jamia Millia Islamia would be setting up a human rights cell to advance the cause of human rights and justice in India, a statement said here Friday.

A core group, guided by the constituent principles of human rights discourse, has been constituted by Vice Chancellor Najeeb Jung "to work out the scope of work, terms of references and the administrative structure" of the cell.

"The group will consult members of Jamia community including students, teacher and non-teaching staff in this regard. It will work on an on-going basis to advance the cause of human rights and justice in India and will engage in a range of activities," said the statement.

The activities include: development and utilization of web-based technologies to advance human rights; conferences, roundtable discussions, and speakers series focused on developing a breakthrough understanding of particular human rights challenges; and field research in conflict and post-conflict societies.

As per the University, "it will utilize the best scholarship and analyses of human rights from the fields of law, politics, sociology, history, and economics to set its agenda and select human rights opportunities to pursue".
