The Oxford Human Rights Hub and Rhodes University are delighted to announce that MPhil student Ugochukwu Ezeh has taken up his OxHRH-Rhodes University Fellowships.

This is a new partnership between the Faculty of Law at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, the OxHRH and the Legal Resource Centre, Grahamstown, South Africa (LRC). South Africa, and the Eastern Cape in particular, provide fertile ground for legal intervention to benefit of poor and vulnerable inhabitants. Rhodes University is a university situated in the Eastern Cape and it is committed to the people and development needs of this province. Ugochukwu’s Fellowship follows the inaugural OxHRH-Rhodes University  Fellowship with James Rooney. In his time in Grahamstown, James explored the effectiveness between class action suits and public interest litigation in litigating socio-economic rights. During Ugochukwu Fellowhsip he will be based jointly at Rhodes University and LRC in Grahmastown and researching on how to realize the right to education for all learners.

We wish him all the best in this exciting new position!
