Human Rights, Women's Rights
Application Deadline: 15 December 2022
Attention: BYU students who want a better world!
Join us in a European exploration into how nations, institutions and individuals work to supplant mankind’s inhumanity to man and woman with peace, compassion, development, and freedom.
In the context of a Latter-day Saint worldview, students will explore the history and current status of human and women’s rights. As a human rights hub, London is an ideal base from which to engage with groups and persons who promote liberty and equality through the protection and advancement of women, anti-slavery measures, religious freedom and more. We will explore the Pankhurst Centre for suffragette history, and Bletchley Park (where women codebreakers advanced the end of World War II). Students will also engage with the UK Parliament, the London School of Economics Centre for Women, Peace and Security; Anti-Slavery, Girls Not Brides, Rights of Women, and other organizations that seek to protect human and women’s rights around the world.
On the European continent we’ll visit the International Criminal Court and Anne Frank House (the Netherlands), and spend time in the capital of the European Union (Brussels, Belgium). Of course, we will also enjoy museums and theater in London, the English countryside, medieval castles, the enchantment of Edinburgh, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
