Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad/IHP Human Rights: Movements, Power, and Resistance

Investigate the historical and social contexts of human rights movements, including the roles of culture, identity, political economy, and international law.
 

WHY A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF HUMAN RIGHTS?

Go beyond the halls of power to learn how individuals and communities are giving momentum to grassroots, human rights movements across four countries. Connect with groups working for immigrant and gender rights and against structural racism in New York City, and critically examine the deep roots of human rights movements throughout the United States. Travel next to Nepal, Jordan, and Chile, where you’ll meet with scholars, members of Parliament, feminist leaders, staff of international non-governmental organizations, United Nations officials, indigenous community members, and refugees. Gain deeper insight into multilayered perspectives on human rights, often against the backdrop of governments in tectonic shift, and understand pathways to enacting human rights-based change. Explore how COVID-19 has shifted the conversations on human rights and highlighted global economic inequity. Along the way, you’ll explore how to live, act, teach, and learn in ways that affirm human dignity, uproot oppression, and advance collective struggles for rights and justice everywhere.
