Interviews with Bahey El Din Hassan

Interviewed December 10, 2023

When also I found that many of the leading youths of the revolution were students in the human rights courses of the Cairo Institute for Human Rights, I feel very proud, and I think this is one of the main factors. And human rights culture, this was the main concern behind the foundation of the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies. And its first activity in July 1994 was a summer course for university students. And this was the only continuous activity every year.

So, before the revolution, we had 17 educational courses for university students. But beginning with 2005, we also added another human rights course for the young cadres of political parties, young cadres of the human rights or other civil society organization. So, I think that by focusing on the question of dissemination of human rights culture, this is also one of the added values which I am very proud of.
