Department of Law - Human Rights

The United Nations defines human rights: it’s inherent rights in all human beings, regardless of their nationality, place of residence, gender, national origin, or customary origin, colour, religion, language, or any other situation. Human rights are internationally recognized and can be social, economic, cultural, political and civil. The specialty of human rights is the most common discipline today, and we have designed this program to understand and explore the meaning of human rights, and their importance in changing societies, where this understanding and awareness plays the main role in dealing with the issues and problems of society.
