Key Concepts in Social Justice HPP216

Hobart

Introduction

This unit provides a critical introduction to the interdisciplinary study of social justice.  The unit draws on social sciences concepts and theories as well as a number of case studies from Australia and abroad to explore the forms of marginalization, oppression and violence that dominate human rights and social justice studies today.  These include an understanding of the regional contexts within which contemporary human rights violations take place, the historical, theoretical, and institutional underpinnings of international human rights advocacy and social justice movements and practices.
