University Human Rights Hybrid Program - African Impact

University Human Rights Hybrid Program

Human Rights in South Africa have, by political means, been limited to a certain race and class of individuals who form the minority of the country. Since its democratization, the extent of human rights covers all humans in the country, and this right is protected by the constitution and civil society organizations who ensure they are afforded accordingly. The politics in South Africa is dynamic and a lot of work is being done to right the wrongs of the past. You will critically engage our program to distill the manner in which these stakeholders keep government and civil society accountable to these protected rights. This experience is tied to your home institutions’ course on Human Rights and can be adjusted to fit a legal, political, sociological, or economic perspective.

LEARNING OUTCOMES OF THIS PROGRAM INCLUDE:

  • Engaging the Human Rights model of an African country
  • Learning a local language
  • Critically engaging the role of government, local organizations, and citizens in ensuring Human Rights and engaging on Human Rights Violations
  • Gaining intercultural perspectives on the subject of Human Rights
  • Applying theoretical knowledge in a practical context
