This theme sets out to investigate some of the most prominent categories contained under the broad definition of human rights, and assesses the links and clashes between rights and responsibilities. European and global contemporary and historical examples will be used to guide learners through an exploration of the topic prompting them to consider their responses to complex ethical scenarios. Areas to be covered will include respect for other peoples’ rights, conflict between cultural practices and human rights, and whether the removal of rights in certain situations can ever be justified.
