E-Seminar: Upholding Human Rights and Justice Today: Religion, Media, and NGOs

E-Seminar: Upholding Human Rights and Justice Today: Religion, Media, and NGOs

The theme of human rights and justice continues to be highly debated in the contemporary world. Academic scholars, politicians, journalists and ordinary people often cite human rights violations or abuses and divergent cases of injustice and inequality. This seminar taps into this ongoing discourse from the perspective of religion, local and international NGOs and mass media (i.e., print and online media). The major aim of this seminar is to explore and analyse the role of religious organisations, NGOs and print/online media platforms in the promotion, advocation and safeguarding of human rights and justice. Why does the discourse on human rights and justice matter? What is the role of religious organisations, print/online media platforms and NGOs in the promotion and safeguarding of human rights and justice? To what extend do religious organisations, print/online media platforms, and NGOs have the freedom to promote human rights and justice? On what basis should they promote human rights and justice? The seminar will draw its data from different perspectives i.e., philosophy, law, religion and theology, sociology, political science, the experiences of participants, etc.
