Course content

Human rights at Sussex goes beyond a narrow legalistic approach. You’ll work with expert faculty, exploring how humans are socially embedded in wider processes of:

  • poverty
  • violence
  • identity
  • globalisation
  • the emergence of global forms of governance.

You’ll benefit from our strong international networks. Our faculty have undertaken consultancy in a range of human rights fields and regional contexts.
