 Prof. Mujuzi’s research interests include international co-operation in criminal matters, criminal procedure, law of evidence and human rights generally (especially from an African perspective). He is an author of over 130 (one hundred and thirty) articles and chapters in books on various aspects of criminal law, criminal justice, prevention of corruption and human rights which have been published in some of the most prestigious peer-reviewed law journals in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Some of his articles have been cited by the South African Supreme Court of Appeal and High Court. Prof. Mujuzi’s publications have also been cited by human rights and international criminal law scholars in books, article or reports published in languages such as English, French, Italian, Chezh and Spanish. His article was also cited in the 2010 United Nations Secretary General’s Report on the Death Penalty, that is, the ‘eighth quinquennial report [which] reviews the use of and trends in capital punishment, including the implementation of the safeguards during the period 2004-2008.” E/2010/10, 18 December 2009.  He is rated as a promising young researcher by the South African National Research Foundation (2013 – 2018).

Prof. Mujuzi has presented papers (including by invitation) at several national and international workshops and forums on various aspects of criminal law and human rights in countries, such as, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Botswana, Nigeria, Swaziland, the United Kingdom, Seychelles, the United States of America, the Netherlands, India, Ghana, Spain and Namibia.
 
He has conducted human rights-related research or activities in countries such as the United Kingdom, Namibia, Mauritius, Germany, Sierra Leone, Qatar, Finland, Botswana, Zambia, Uganda, Cameroon, Seychelles, Tanzania, Kenya, and Malawi.

He has successfully supervised and continues to supervise LLB, LLM and LLD/PhD students. He has been an external examiner (LLB, LLM and PhD/LLD) for universities such as the University of Pretoria, University of Cape Town, North West University (Potchefstroom), University of KwaZulu-Natal, Makerere University, University of Botswana, and Islamic University in Uganda. He has advised international organisations, government departments and law firms on human rights issues such as the prevention of torture and the issue of life imprisonment.

He has been interviewed by leading South African television and radio stations and newspapers on various criminal justice issues such as private prosecutions, transfer of offenders between countries, the prohibition of torture, public prosecutors’ discretionary powers and the placement of offenders (prisoners) on parole.

He has been a visiting academic/researcher at different universities such as the Centre for Criminology, Faculty of Law, University of Oxford; Faculty of Law, University of Nottingham; School of Law, University of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania); Makerere University, (Uganda); Islamic University (Uganda); University of Seychelles; and the University of Ibadan (Nigeria). He is the former Editor-in-Chief (2012 – June 2018) of the Faculty of Law’s Journal, Law, Democracy and Development. He is one of the founding Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Anti-Corruption Law (Faculty of Law, UWC). He has reviewed manuscripts (articles) for journals in different parts of the world.

From early July 2009 to late June 2011 Prof. Mujuzi worked as the Senior Project Officer, Criminal Justice Initiative, Open Society Foundation for South Africa (OSF-SA), in Cape Town. OSF-SA is part of the Open Society Foundations. As a Senior Project Officer, he worked with colleagues in conceptualising, implementing, and overseeing the implementation of various criminal justice-related projects in South Africa and in some Southern Africa countries. These projects included policing, prisons, legislative monitoring and reform, prevention and punishment of torture, and crime prevention.

From February 2007 to June 2009, Prof. Mujuzi was a Doctoral Researcher at the Community Law Centre (Dullar Omar Institute), UWC, in the Civil Society Prison Reform Initiative (Africa Criminal Justice Reform), where he was involved in research and advocacy aimed at promoting the rights of prisoners in South Africa and other African countries.

In 2004 Prof. Mujuzi worked as a Legal Officer at the African Centre for Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture Victims, in Uganda, where he was involved in, amongst other things, investigating and documenting allegations of torture in various Ugandan prisons, and training military, police and security officers in the prohibition of torture.
