Before we can delve into understanding issues discussed in this course it is essential to understand the UDHR. The human conditions at play in many of the issues we will discuss this semester result from a lapse, for a myriad of reasons, in upholding the UDHR. Let's begin with a brief history of the UDHR:
Human Rights - Background (zaption will take you into the video below)

Eleanor Roosevelt (9 min.)

Eleanor's quote at the end of the video is of paramount importance:

Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighbourhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerned citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”

Eleanor Roosevelt, “In Our Hands” (1958 speech delivered on the tenth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
