In these unprecedented circumstances of the present pandemic, governments across the world have been forced to take extreme steps in their attempts to contain the virus.
The rights of many of us to go to a pub, a shop and many other places have been curtailed and re-defined as a public health hazard. In some countries more, extreme steps have been taken. In Hungary, to take one example, President Orban has been given new powers to rule by decree.
Join UWE philosophy staff to discuss how current restrictions can be viewed in terms of wider Human Rights.
So, what are you waiting for? Register to attend this “Taster Session” delivered by Professor Alison Assiter and meet with Dr Francesco Tava and the rest of the UWE Bristol Philosophy team.
If you are going to come along, have a think about the following questions:
• “What is a Human Right?”
• “Can you think of any violations of human rights?”
• “Do you know of any criticisms of human rights?”
For those who wish, there will be an opportunity to discuss your ideas live.
UWE Bristol’s Philosophy programme is consistently in the Top 10 of Philosophy programmes in the UK (Guardian League Tables), and we are proud to say that 100% of our students are satisfied with their course.
