Human rights are not just tools for lawyers. In each professional field, human rights can be respected and promoted or violated. Just think of non-discrimination, sexual harassment, health and safety, privacy, freedom of religion. Respecting, protecting and promoting human rights is every individual’s and business’ responsibility. This course offers basic tools to students with different backgrounds to understand what human rights are,
what instruments do exist and what kind of human rights violations still exist in our globalized society.
The course will be problem-based. Each unit will be oriented to understand, discuss and find solutions to existing challenges. We will work in groups and learn through simulations and participatory activities how to respect, protect and promote human rights in your future professional field.
