Defending Dignity: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Amnesty International via FutureLearn

Overview

Explore the impact of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

On 10 December 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a revolutionary new document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). What made the Declaration revolutionary was that the UN member states acknowledged that all human beings all over the world were born with the same, indivisible human rights, and all nations and all people had a right and a duty to stand up for the rights of everybody else.

On this course you will get an introduction to the UDHR, and discover ways you can take action to defend and claim your rights, and the rights of others.

This course is for everyone who wants to know, claim and defend their human rights and the rights of others. You don’t need any previous knowledge of human rights.
