Message from Executive Director Manzoor Hasan, OBE

This second annual report of The Centre for Peace and Justice (CPJ) of Brac University focuses on our work related to “Empowerment for Peace and Social Justice” over the last year. By upholding the CPJ’s five year strategic theme “Creating Knowledge for Social Empowerment” CPJ took numerous initiatives under academic, research, training and advocacy programme. Among our key outputs for the year are the launching of short course on SDG 16; the official launching of the Bangla-English version of the Paralegal Module in Dhaka; bringing paralegal training in the field of humanitarian support; undertaking three research projects on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Bangladesh, and Promoting Peaceful and Cohesive Society. In support of UN Women we embarked on an innovative project with two regional public universities in Bangladesh on capacity building of young women towards promoting a peaceful and cohesive society. CPJ had a strong presence in the public media by co-organising international conference, and seminar on the issue of justice and accountability for Rohingya Refugees. CPJ hold a public lecture by Honourable Bob Rae, special envoy of Canadian Prime Minister on Rohingya Refugee Crisis. We are committed to continue our endeavour towards creating knowledge and engagement in the field of peace, fragility, social justice and open society. I am delighted with the support received by our partners, resource persons and colleagues at the CPJ.
