Project 2012
Safer Students Campaign

This campaign welcomes migrants and international students to Christchurch, born out of collaboration between Christchurch Police, the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University, CPIT, TRoNT, Christchurch City Council and the Human Rights Commission on a campaign. The project also works towards ensuring that migrants and international students know their rights in terms of racial safety and harassment, as well as supporting the Report-it website, an accessible reporting method for such incidents. Visit for more information.

The three-year pilot project has come to a closure by the end of 2011. However, Education New Zealand is considering a national version of the Christchurch Safer Students Project, which as been receiving considerable support at both a government and NGO level for the Christchurch Project, and it is believed that it would be of considerable advantage to the New Zealand education sector if this could be rolled out and expanded nationally.
