Are you interested in human rights? And how human rights relate to problems of cultural inequalities around the world?
Our MA Human Rights and Cultural Diversity is suited to you if you have a particular interest in this specialised area of study. You acquire a deeper knowledge and understanding of the central issues and debates surrounding the application and justification of human rights within a culturally complex and diverse world.
These problems are legal, social, political and philosophical, and our course reflects this in our multidisciplinary approach. In contrast to our other human rights courses, this MA examines human rights specifically in relation to cultural diversity. You explore topics including:
Theoretical foundations of human rights The practice of human rights in the context of cultural diversity Notions of human rights in Africa Contemporary issues of cultural diversity
