Welcome to week 3!

This week will explain the importance of the right that every individual has to actively, freely, and meaningfully participate in their society’s conduct of public affairs in order to enjoy the wide range of rights the UDHR seeks to guarantee. Every person should have a voice in making decisions that affect their lives and be part of influencing their own destiny.

After completing this week you will be able to:

  • Identify the impact of people standing up for human rights
  • Engage in taking action for a more inclusive and participatory society
  • Describe how the UDHR influenced the development of human rights law and standards
