Welcome to the course - Defending Dignity: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights!

This short course, Defending Dignity: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, will equip you with knowledge and skills that will enable you to know and claim your rights, and the rights of others, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

You will be challenged to think critically and devise effective actions to defend and promote human rights. You will be able to apply the rights enshrined in the UDHR to real life situations and learn to challenge cases where people are denied their rights.

This is Amnesty International’s online course exploring the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Be prepared for active, self-paced learning, and connecting with course participants across the world to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and turn yourself into a human rights defender and an agent of change.
