Human rights are the most precious legacy of human thought and civilisation and its protection is sacrosanct and inviolable, universally. Respect for human rights is fundamental to the discourse of survival of any nation and to the core values of human society. Therefore, there is an urgent need to create sufficient awareness about the philosophy, issues and practice of this subject. The aim of this course is to equip participants with basic knowledge relating to human rights and provide information on its effective management and enforcement. The Course will also enable participants to effectively apply the principles of human rights in their chosen fields as well as outside of it, as conscientious citizens and will especially contribute to the progress of those interested in legal, political, sociological and ethical theory. The Course is adequately interspersed with field visits, as we believe this would expose participants to a wide range of issues requiring attention as well as to the mechanisms available for the protection of human rights.
