    Are We All Equal Are We All Equal Presentation Transcript

    • Human Rights Across the World Are we all equal?
    • What are Human Rights?
      • Following World War II the UN was formed and one of its first tasks was to create the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to help maintain world peace
      • The UN represents all countries and so the Rights apply wherever and whoever you are
      • They are international standards that give a legal and moral framework for democracy
      • Can you think of any Rights which you think all humans should have?
    • What are they?
      • Human Rights can be divided into 4 main categories:
          • Personal rights – dignity and equality
          • Rights of individual in society – privacy, movement, marriage
          • Public freedom and political rights – freedom of thought and opinion
          • Economic, cultural and social rights – health, education, leisure
      • Link to full Declaration
    • Do all countries respect Human Rights?
      • Unfortunately, many people in many different countries have experienced a violation of their human rights
      • These violations include genocide, torture, slavery, rape, enforced sterilization, medical experimentation, deliberate starvation, war crimes, slave prostitution and unfair trials
      • Link to Human Rights Watch
    • What is our Task?
      • Our 2 groups are going to be doing a presentation to the rest of Dover Mini School at the end of this term
      • Our topic is: “Human Rights around the world; are we all equal?”
    • Are we all equal?
      • Unlike the other tutor groups, our focus will be on COMPARING how well different parts of the world respect the Declaration of Human Rights
      • Which countries would make for a good comparison?
    • How will we present our findings?
      • We have loads of options for how we present our findings:
      • Which types of media interest you?
      poems story quiz Video diary collage movie Large annotated world map speech song drama Powerpoint leaflet costumes models posters
    • Who is going to do what?
      • Every single one of the 46 of us will be involved in creating this presentation over the course of the next 4-5 weeks
      • We therefore need to decide who is going to do what
    • How will we be successful?
      • We will be successful because we are such quality, talented individuals
      • Our presentation will be informative, fun, engaging and have that extra D9 and D5 touch!
