In 1993, Indonesia experienced a lot of important events. Democratization became the major issue raised by most of the people. With human rights violations occurring in several cities, there was a strong call on the government to establish the National Commission on Human Rights. Based on these events and the development of studies on human rights, the Centre for Human Rights Studies in the University of Surabaya was established on 18 August 1995.
The Centre fully supports the Human Rights Documentation Centre (Documentation Centre), founded six weeks after its establishment. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) through a cooperation program with Human Rights Research and Education Centre of Ottawa University and Raoul Wallenberg Institute assisted the founding of the Documentation Centre. This program focused on assistance on book supply, hardware and software to manage and process the book collections. This program ended in 2002.
