Post Graduate Diploma in Human Rights
The continuing aspiration of an individual to
seek an environment where one is treated with
equity, equality and justice represents the
evolution of Human Rights. The concept of human
rights of justice and of human dignity as such
date back to antiquity. The institutionalization
of human rights in national and international
constitutional documents is a development which
has penetrated into international system at the
end of eighteenth century. During this period,
fundamental rights were for the first time
listed in catalogues similar to those available
in our constitutions today. The objective of
this course is to familiarize students to
various aspects of human rights. Human rights
education not only provides an understanding of
one's own rights but also of fostering an
attitude of tolerance, goodwill and removal of
prejudices towards fellow human beings. The
topics in this course are chosen carefully so
that the students can be motivated to pursue
their interest in the field of human rights.
It is in the hope of spreading human rights
awareness, the NUJS has started a (approx. two

Rights, from the academic year 2011-12.
