Reasons to pursue B.A. (Hons.) Human Rights from Jindal Global Law School (JGLS)

Does social injustice around the globe distress you? Have you ever wondered why there is indifference about human rights around the globe? Have you ever thought why, despite having a robust legal and normative framework surrounding human rights, it has somehow failed to address and implement the universality of human rights at various layers of society? Questioning why having several human rights instruments at the regional and national level are unsuccessful to compliment the international norms or human rights? Want to become a ‘Human Rights advocate’ and open the spectrum of career opportunities? 

As a civil society, we should understand that humans can never be construed as commodities and therefore should always be treated with respect. All human beings are born as equals with dignity and rights. Taking away the autonomy of their own body and movement shall be held as slavery or servitude and no human shall be subjected to things such as torture, cruelty, inhuman or degrading treatment, or punishment. As Nelson Mandela once said, “To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity”.

Civil society has a key role to play in creating the conditions to realise, promote, raise awareness on social issues, advocate for a change, strive to develop progressive policies, implement new strategies, and work hand-in-hand with the government to bring a positive change to empower the vulnerable.
