Human rights can only be achieved through an informed and continued demand by people for their protection. Human rights education promotes values, beliefs and attitudes that encourage all individuals to uphold their own rights and those of others. It develops an understanding of everyone's common responsibility to make human rights a reality in each community. Human rights education constitutes an essential contribution to the long-term prevention of human rights abuses and represents an important investment in the endeavour to achieve a just society in which all human rights of all persons are valued and respected. This Certificate program, taught in English, is designed for students who want to learn about Human Rights in Latin America from philosophical, historical, cultural and social viewpoints. The courses that make up this program are: Genocide in the 20th century, Current Topics of Human Rights through film and Dictatorship and Activism in the Southern Cone in the 60s and 70s.
