Information about Erfurt University students.

Course Outline:

The course on ‘Human Rights and Ethics of Peace’ focuses on how “world religions” have influenced and inspired values of social justice, human rights and peace ethics. Different theoretical perspectives will be discussed in order to study the entanglement of cultural, historical, political, ethnic and of course religious factors that contribute to the recognition and implementation of universal human rights. With the help of comparative and historical religious narratives, this course will attempt to go beyond the Enlightenment periods, when Christianity, Judaism and Islam predominantly defined and promulgated the ethical and moral fabric also in post-colonial societies in order to expound the problem of the validity of Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR, adopted by the United Nations in 1948).

Format & Excursions

This course will be offered as a block seminar/Summer School for ten consecutive days and includes lectures from multiple instructors from all over Germany, interactive workshops, excursions to Berlin and Weimar. Students of religious seminaries from Pakistan will take part in this course along with the students of University of Erfurt. Students from other faculties are welcome.
