CSLR Senior Fellow Johan van der Vyer, I.T. Cohen Professor of International Law and Human Rights at Emory, and Extraordinary Professor at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, was recently designated an A-level researcher by the National Research Foundation of South Africa. A-level researches are recognized as leading international scholars in their fields and for the exceptional quality and impact of their research. Out of the 22 professors awarded this distinction in 2012, Van der Vyer is the sole professor in the field of law, as well as the only A-rated researcher from the University of Pretoria. Additional A-level researchers include professors of Physics, Medicine, Zoology, and Education among other fields.
