The Centre for the Study of Human Rights - University of Peradeniya (CSHR-UP) was established in February 2003. It is a separate entity attached to the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. It functions under the purview of the University Senate, similar in status to other centres that already exist at the university.
The mandate of CSHR-UP allows it to plan and execute its own programs, promote and assist other governmental and non-governmental institutions to carry out relevant programs and coordinate and monitor the activities undertaken by these institutional partners. CHR-UP aims to promote knowledge of human rights through multi-disciplinary educational and research activities involving the university community and the public.
