This course delves into human rights: what they are, how they were historically determined, and the challenges to making sure that they are realized for all.
About this course
The lack of universally implemented human rights is prevalent, as many marginalized groups continue to be denied such rights. Human rights are an essential part of sustainability; without ensuring rights for all, sustainable development is impossible. This course provides the history of human rights and their establishment as well as their pertinence to sustainable development. Additionally, this course provides a legal framework to understand why human rights are not ensured worldwide.
