Introduction to Human Rights (IHR101)
- Monday 19:10-21:30
- Tokyo (Maps & Directions)
Over the past 10 years, we have had many changes at the social and global levels. While some groups have forged ahead, many are still struggling for basic human rights and equality. This is an introductory course aiming to deepen participants' understanding of the development of human rights and the current rights issues. Each week we review a particular human rights topic, specific cases studies, and the challenges and impacts of campaigns. The course aims to: 1) develop a more critical understanding of key human rights issues; 2) deepen one's awareness of the importance of different actors in achieving equity; 3) share know-how and knowledge with other class participants; 4) learn how issues evolve and connect with other social problems; 5) understand how to become more involved and what role you can play in resolving these issues.
This class will require participants to be active in discussions and to complete weekly reading assignments of both case studies and NGO websites.
The course is taught in English but the instructor is fluent in both English and Japanese.
