Enrich your understanding of human rights ideas and practices at local, national and international levels throughout this series of three courses about Human Rights – in one package from Curtin University. This package includes:
Human Rights Theory and Philosophy
Explore what is meant by human rights through learning about the development of the conventional understanding of universal human rights as well as some of the major critiques of the concept.
Human Rights and Development
Discover why a critical understanding of development is paramount to addressing poverty, inequality, climate change, indigenous rights and issues of social justice.
Activism, Advocacy and Change
Learn about the role of social movements, advocacy groups and activism in bringing about social change.
The series is multidisciplinary and will benefit anyone wanting to begin or advance their career across a broad range of disciplines. Gaining an awareness of contemporary issues in human rights is important in professions such as education, health, law, religion, social work and development work, both in the public and private sector.
You can also benefit from human rights knowledge in a voluntary capacity, advocating social justice, peace or building a sustainable future.
