Promoting and Protecting Human Rights: a Global Overview (GCHumanRights)
In times of violence and crisis, human rights are important safeguards. In times of peace, security and development, they are important pillars sustaining our common humanity. They are more than moral or legal concepts: they are the lymph of our lives. For them to run effectively, we need to relentlessly promote and protect them. This course provides you with a solid basis to understand, know and stand up for human rights.
