Faglig innhold

In today's world national states and the human population are increasingly interdependent and interconnected. The globalization process has implications for human identity and human relations in several different ways. Accordingly, global ethics and human rights are important to think through and address the ethical challenges produced or intensified by globalization. This interdisciplinary course provides knowledge in ethical competence in relation to human rights and ethical dilemmas in the context of globalization and human welfare. The course examines welfare rights as a component of human rights and in relation to human needs using a mixture of normative, theoretical and empirical tools. The course includes knowledge of human rights, ethics, social welfare and social justice. UN sustainable development goals, in addition to migration and borders of human mobility, will be addressed. Questions about ethical responsibility and different ethical values, principles and dilemmas are analysed and discussed.

The course is offered as an area subject within the social sciences field of study.
