Human Rights, Human Wrongs: Challenging Poverty, Vulnerability and Social Exclusion

Joshua Castellino, Sarah Bradshaw, SDGAcademyX

With complex legal protections and varying societal norms, how do we ensure rights for all?

From women to children to indigenous peoples, the rights of marginalized groups the world over are violated daily. These injustices affect not just these groups, but also the stability of our world – and our collective future.

Join this massive open online course to learn about the establishment of human rights and their linkages to many other global issues in sustainable development. Using legal frameworks as the lens, the course explores the barriers that prevent rights from becoming reality in different societies.

This course is for:
  • Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students studying human rights, law, sustainable development, international relations, and related fields
  • Human rights practitioners working on the ground who want to improve the efficacy of intervention programs
  • Lawyers and policymakers interested in the context of existing and past human rights legislation and the current issues at play in revising legislation or adopting new legislation
  • Private-sector actors, such as those who work in corporate sustainability and responsibility, who are interested in labor rights, gender equality and more
  • Sustainable development practitioners who want to understand human rights in the context of a range of issues, such as forced migration

What will you learn

  • International agreements in place to support marginalized groups
  • How global politics shape the conversation – and the law
  • Gender, ethnicity and other factors that intersect – and interfere – with rights worldwide
  • How new approaches to humanitarian assistance hurt and help
