Revisiting the past: human rights education and epistemic justice

Rebecca Adami, Stockholm University, Sweden

Wednesday, November 10, 2021

10:30 am – 11:30 am, CST

In this webinar, Rebecca Adami invites us to look afresh at history and at the historical narratives surrounding the founding of the United Nations and the modern human rights project. She highlights a colonial historical trajectory of human rights that rests on accounts of western agency, with scholarship and teaching leading many to assume that the human rights project is exclusively western in its origins.
