View available sections

This course examines human rights from the perspective of cultural anthropology through its theoretical and practical dimensions. It addresses contemporary human rights debates within the context of cultural plurality in a globalized world. We will engage the intersection between global dynamics and community experiences by addressing the human rights dimensions of refugees and migration, indigenous communities, women and children, health, and religious practices, among others.
