Today, the SDG Academy launches Human Rights, Human Wrongs: Challenging Poverty, Vulnerability and Social Exclusiona Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) focusing on human rights and their significance in a sustainable development context.

The 11-week online course is led and instructed by experts in the field – Dr Joshua Castellino, Executive Director of Minority Rights Group International, and Dr Sarah Bradshaw, Head of the School of Law at Middlesex University. It brings together two different perspectives on rights – the legal and the social– to explore what implementing a rights-based agenda entails, and examines how rights are understood around the world, as well as the barriers that prevent rights from being experienced as a lived reality.

The course is available to all and particularly created for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, human rights practitioners, lawyers, policymakers, private-sector actors and sustainable development practitioners.
