The right to Thought, Conscience, Religion or Belief, FORB for short, is a fundamental human right that belongs to each human being. At its core it enables us to seek truth and meaning for our own lives.
However, research shows not only that this right is frequently violated, but also that it’s commonly misunderstood. The consequences of neglecting or removing FORB in a society are serious, as FORB is an important component of sustainable peace and development.
So, it is important to understand what FORB is and why it matters, and the social impact it can have to be able to factor FORB into your work. This non-moderated course on the right to Freedom of Religion or Belief will provide you with the tools to do just that, at your own pace whenever you want.
The course uses short videos, interactive exercises and case studies from across the globe to help you learn and reflect on what FORB is and why it matters. The course consists of four modules:
- A brief introduction to human rights
- What is FORB?
- FORB violators, victims and scapegoats
