Human Rights 101

A place to learn basic information about human rights.

Ableist Language star
Ableist language, or language that targets people with disabilities, is problematic because the words and phrases have histories of oppressing disabled people or are currently used to oppress disabled people. We'd be better off to stop using ableist language.

Drawbacks and Alternatives to Voluntourism star
What is “voluntourism”? Though it may have drawbacks, some good may come from it, and, better yet, there may be some good alternatives to it.

Privilege Defined star
Privilege is the concept that some people are inherently given more advantages based on race, gender, social class, and other things. In order to have meaningful dialogues in human rights, we need to be aware of our own privilege and how it influences our world view.

The Geneva Conventions star
The Geneva Conventions are highly important because they protect civilians and those who are no longer able to fight. These Conventions remain as timely and relevant to us today as when they were ratified.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights star
As human beings, we have inalienable rights that we are born with. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was created to both define and protect these rights. Though it was created just after WWII, it is still as valuable today as it was then.

Water as a Human Right star
Access to good, clean water is a necessity to live a healthy life. Does this mean that access to water should be a human right?

What Are Human Rights star
What are human rights, and what are some important topics in human rights? Read on to find out!
