Since that time, not only has the number of subjects in the area expanded considerably, but so to have the range of activities being pursued.

HURIPEC represented a Makerere University's response to a sustained period of gross human rights violations in Uganda. The principal perpetrators of human rights violations against the population have been the state and rebel groups however, increasingly, non-state actors, ranging from the family to corporate entities have been responsible for perpetrating various human rights abuses. Cross-boarder incursions and was complicated and deepened further Uganda's human rights situation. Far-reaching consequences have included acute decline in economic production, the decay in economic infrastructure and the cllapse of the state and political institutions.
