The BA Social Anthropology with Human Rights combines an anthropological approach to the study of society and social interaction whilst considering human rights issues in local contexts. Students will explore how human rights are applied across multiple cultures and the ways in which local communities can promote and protect human rights. They will investigate the many different social tensions, interactions and networks that make up everyday life, as well as the definition, development, and abuse of rights around the globe. This programme offers a wide range of topics including: Multiculturalism and human rights; The politics of indigeneity and indigenous human rights; Anthropological approaches to gender and ethnicity; How to analyse human rights in an international context; Anthropological research methods.
