Global Citizenship, Identities and Human Rights

The programme explores what recent changes to the global cultural and political landscape mean for individuals and groups in terms of their ability to access human rights (social, economic and cultural, as well as political and civil). It provides students with advanced level sociological knowledge of the concepts of �globalisation�, �citizenship�, � identity� and �human rights�, as well as a critical understanding of their application in a range of discourses (political, legal, academic and popular). This programme will be particularly attractive to social science and arts graduates who wish to pursue careers in the NGO sector, academia, the civil service or journalism, as it both provides advanced level sociological knowledge of debates on human rights, citizenship, globalisation and identities, and offers opportunities, to develop specialist knowledge and understanding of post-conflict cultures, human rights law and/or of media and globalisation, rights and identities.
