Christine Lwanga


Adjunct Professor

Dr. Christine Lwanga is an Adjunct Professor and a Research Fellow at the Faculty of Social Work, University of Manitoba. Her research interests are focused on human rights principles, values, and objectives and related policy and sustainable development. Lwanga’s work highlights the role of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) and UNESCO (1978) Declaration on Race and the Elimination of Racial Prejudice in advancing healing and social justice. She employs critical race and social theory, systems-based knowledge, and post-modernism dialectical analysis, and impact evaluation as part of evidence-based practice to promote holistic (human-social-economic), inclusive, and equitable development. Lwanga is currently co-leading a MITACS/ Industry (community) partnership project exploring the use of human rights values centered practice theory and measurements of outcomes to enhance the effectiveness of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs.
