Richard Ntakirutimana
Executive Director

Richard graduated from the University of Pretoria with a Master of Laws degree in Human Rights and Democratization in Africa and also holds a post graduate diploma in Human Rights and Development from the University of Antwerp.

In addition to his academic qualifications, he is a human rights advocate belonging to, and working with, the Minority historically marginalised people former known as Batwa in Rwanda, most specifically in his role as Executive Director of the African Initiative for Mankind Progress Organization, a non-governmental organization working with Indigenous people.

This background of both academic study and advocacy have given him a firm foundation in conducting policy-focussed research with marginalised communities, an area that is of significant importance to the field of human rights.
