About us

Ubuntu means humanity towards others

 CS Ubuntu is the study association for Conflict Studies and Human Rights. It was created by and for students of Utrecht University. As an open study association, we take an interdisciplinary approach and welcome all those interested in the ever-relevant academic fields of conflict studies and human rights. We organize lectures, study trips, excursions and social activities. All of our activities are conducted in English.

Over the years, CS Ubuntu has had many members from a vast diversity of backgrounds, both in terms of nationality and in terms of academic specialization. Indeed, we have members from three different Faculties of Utrecht University – The Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance and the Faculty of Social Sciences – as well as exchange students from all over the world.

Membership of CS Ubuntu is open for

Utrecht University students who want to acquire a better understanding of human conflict and human rights.

As such, CS Ubuntu provides conflict studies-related activities in an international social setting, with the combined aims of knowledge sharing, capacity building, and career orientation.
