Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The Human Rights course is designed to promote a critical understanding of the human rights discourse. The course covers modern human rights institutions and how these work for state and non-state actors. The course also explores the political, historical and philosophical development of ideas about human rights which underpin current systems. In recognition of the importance of a globalised understanding of human rights, the course explores ideas about human rights from multi-disciplinary, multicultural and multi-religious perspectives, as well as looks at the roles of social movements, grass-roots campaigns and other actors have played in the development of human rights ideas and practices. The course takes a problematising approach to education, provoking students to engage with a range of ideas and perspectives and to develop their own positions. The course employs both theoretical and practical learning methods giving students the chance to put their learning into practice and to pursue individual areas of interest more deeply.
