Human rights defenders strive for a world in which human rights are respected, protected and fulfilled. Learn to bridge the gap between theory and practice by combining hands-on experience with interdisciplinary academic enquiry. Discover the theoretical frameworks and practical skills which make advances in human rights possible. Study different aspects of human rights practice: the strategies employed and the debates, institutions and political structures that human rights defenders seek to influence. You'll learn directly from human rights defenders with first-hand experience in governmental, judicial, and grassroots roles. Develop a range of fieldwork, advocacy and legal skills and apply these on a placement in the UK or South Africa.
