As a Jesuit Centre, JUC advocates for social justice and uphold dignity for all. Thus, we conduct research on current, pressing challenges in Rwanda. In addition, we are continuously assessing changes and trends that have impact on the social development of Rwandan population. We do this by conducting research, which we provide to policy planners and program developers. We also offer platform for dialogue and advocacy. Finally, disseminate the findings of our research to the public.
