RE: LETTER OF INVITATION TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS STAKEHOLDERS SYMPOSIUM TOWARDS 2010 GENERAL ELECTION
University of Dar es salaam Human Rights Association (UDHRA) is an autonomous, non-profit student initiative organization which was formed and registered in the year 2000 at the University of Dar es salaam. Currently, UDHRA enjoys the support of over 1800 students, being members of the Association and is under the patronage of Professor Palamagamba J. Kabudi and Peter Mhapa who is the current president of UDHRA.
UDHRA Pursuant to its constitution realizes the role of Universities in various matters concerning dignity and the rights of people. We conduct seminars, moot courts, workshops, panel discussions etc to raise awareness to the University community and entire country about Human rights issues. We therefore in collaboration with Legal and Human Rights Centre, have great pleasure and honor to invite you /your organization/media to attend the event .It is obvious that you are too scheduled but the University community and Human rights stakeholders have something to share with the public few days before General Election on 31st /October, 2010. (Media and human rights NGOs are encouraged to value this final event toward 31st Oct)
Knowing that not all people are members of political parties, UDRA has engaged and tasked its former Leaders who are non-partisan to make analysis of all political party’s manifesto whose candidates vie for presidential post and present the same during the public talk. The main objective of the Symposium is to bring together human rights stakeholders and citizens who are non-partisan to scrutinize party manifestos in human rights perspectives and in so doing advice the public to elect leaders who respect principles of human rights and good governance. Consulted presenters will present their findings in a roundtable discussion followed by public discussion. Presenters have been assigned to present issues of human rights addressed or not addressed in political party’s’ manifestos.
The symposium will be conducted at Karimjee Hall on 23rd October, 2010 from 8.00 to 1.00 pm.The conference will gather human rights activists, media, university students, members of diplomatic corps, political analysts and non-partisans.
