Course content

This course explores recent changes to the global cultural and political landscape, and what these mean for individuals and groups accessing their human rights.

Demand for various forms of expertise on human rights, citizenship and identities is rapidly expanding as governments, international agencies, non-governmental and private sector organisations become increasingly sensitive to, and interested in questions about rights and identities.

In the current global context, national versions of citizenship have reached crisis point. Yet what does it mean to think of yourself as a global citizen? This course investigates critical global issues such as war, migration, climate change, credit crunch, nationalism, global media, sex tourism, modern slavery, gender and sexuality, and contemporary racism.
