Global Rights and Perceptions
In Global Rights and Perceptions students read from a wide variety of original sources—foreign policy journals, non-fiction books, medical journals, and current affairs magazines on how human rights are currently being violated through practices such as human trafficking, female genital mutilation, organ trade, and female feticide. This varied exposure gives students several gateways through which to approach complex social issues, think and write about them with awareness and engagement. Based on the premise that students must be pulled away from a highly commercial, digitally perfect present, and encouraged to intelligently and passionately examine an imperfect world with a view to changing it, the book provides a well-rounded education on global rights, and the lack thereof, in our modern world.
