Overview

Synopsis
The course explores the nexus and different dimensions of the crisis of poverty, (under)development and human rights from a historical, institutional and policy-making perspective.

Conceiving poverty alleviation as an essential human rights obligation, this course examines domestic and international variables that have occasioned and exacerbated world poverty, inequality and underdevelopment. The course also formulates and highlights what duties states and international institutions owe to the poor and the victims of global injustice.

Target students
University-level education (Bachelor, Master, or equivalent), including career professionals, with a strong interest in human rights, poverty and development.

No prior knowledge of the subject matter required.
