Human Rights in Action

Occasional Publication No. 5


Human Rights in Action: Power, Politics, and Practices

This volume focuses on the topic of human rights in the context of international education. The papers in this volume illustrate divergent viewpoints on human rights as “natural,” or dependent on societal or political circumstances. The concept of universal rights, equally attributed to all people by virtue of their shared humanity, is strongly appealing in a world characterized by inequalities, injustices, domination, and oppression. The topic of rights provides rich potential for student engagement and deep learning in the context of study abroad, and yet, as several of the authors in this volume argue, this opportunity is one which has been relatively neglected to date.
