Human Rights and Development

Discover why a critical understanding of development is paramount to addressing poverty, inequality, climate change, indigenous rights and issues of social justice.

In this course you will learn the meaning of development based on human rights and social justice perspectives. You will understand how development is practiced based on the needs, rights and capabilities of individuals; and critically explore the strengths and shortcomings of these approaches.

Next, you’ll explore the ideology behind international aid programs and look at development from both Indigenous and African perspectives. You’ll uncover human rights abuses, environmental issues and challenges to colonialist development, all of which still have an effect to this day.

Finally, you’ll explore the role of international financial and trade institutions in global development.
