Human Rights and Development
In this course you will learn the meaning of development based on human rights and social justice perspectives. You will understand how development is practiced based on the needs, rights and capabilities of individuals; and critically explore the strengths and shortcomings of these approaches.
Next, you’ll explore the ideology behind international aid programs and look at development from both Indigenous and African perspectives. You’ll uncover human rights abuses, environmental issues and challenges to colonialist development, all of which still have an effect to this day.
Finally, you’ll explore the role of international financial and trade institutions in global development.
This course is part of the Human Rights MicroMasters program.
If you take the verified certificate pathway for the three human rights courses you will qualify for the MicroMasters credential.
