Defining and Defending Humanity

To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.

- Nelson Mandela

Focusing on areas such as diplomacy, human rights, prison systems and foreign policy, this topic seeks to address what is means to be ‘human’ within the law and the questions of both inequality and positive difference this engenders. From questions of gender and local community, to global issues of surveillance and religious conflict, this topic seeks to address international debates about justice, freedom, citizenship within both local and global communities.
