Human Rights in Arts
Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms to which all human beings are entitled, including civil, political, economic, and social rights.  At the University of Manitoba, more than 150 researchers from a variety of disciplines focus on human rights related issues.

Within the Faculty of Arts, researchers take a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to human rights research, working together with the Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace and Justice, Robson Hall and the Centre for Human Rights Research Initiative, as well as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.  We endeavor to enrich student learning, inform public policy and intellectual debate, and strengthen cultural diversity.

Researchers within the Faculty of Arts consider a range of issues including: power relations within political and economic structures; social justice, social movements and self-determination; theoretical foundations and structural conditions of rights and duties; aboriginal rights; historical injustices; and global citizenship, peace, and conflict resolution. 

Here you will find information about events, research and outreach concerning human rights in the Faculty of Arts.
