Human Rights is a topic that is constantly on the agenda. We keep hoping things will change for the better, but atrocities are daily news. Uprisings and big political changes can lead to better human rights conditions, but also to war and crimes against humanity. This series of lectures will explore the significance of human rights in a globalising world. The lectures will demonstrate how human rights are increasingly becoming an instrument with which to challenge the negative side effects of globalisation.
