It is tremendous that she has chosen Swansea University for her first public appearance on this visit to the UK. It shows that we are being noticed for our excellent research and teaching and for the impact that Swansea University is making in global challenge areas. Swansea University’s Observatory on the Human Rights of Children and Young People is working to improve human rights on a global basis through the exchange of policy, practice, advocacy and law reform and we are delighted that one of the biggest international names in politics and in advancing the rights of children is now synonymous with this work”.
