We complete our course on human rights this block with a section on how people have defended and are defending HRs today. You will learn what to do if your or other people's HRs are being overlooked, ignored or abused. If you choose, the class will support you to take action on HRs.

Moving very close to home, we'll develop a human rights audit for a school and then audit Ao Tawhiti. Perhaps we'll identify some areas to work on and create the next generation of activists!

We will have tried our hand at essay writing in 2.1 and will decide as a group which skills we want to work on in this block. I am aware that debating and simulation games are outstanding from the first block so we will definitely do some of these.

New students are able to join the course but will need to do a catch up on the articles within the Declaration of Human Rights. Let me know and I'll share some reading with you.
