WELCOME TO HUMAN RIGHTS SOCIETY
As people from many walks of life are accommodated in one location, including staff, students, and other stakeholders, Queen Mary University is considered among the most diversified universities. This multiformity leads to a variety of opinions and beliefs. People sometimes want their convictions to be recognised and put forward. Human Rights Society will intervene in these circumstances to offer a secure forum for people to voice their opinions, discuss any worries, and educate students at large about the rising global human rights struggle. This society will endeavour to provide a medium to channel thoughts and emotions from a wide-ranging group and to create a safe space to acknowledge increasing worldwide human rights violations at a university level. Human Rights is a concept embedded deep in almost every aspect of life such as the infringement or relevance of human rights in the corporate world that most people are inclined towards, making it a more relevant subject matter to be considered today.
AIM OF THE SOCIETY
PROMOTE AND PROTECT INCLUSIVITY IN DIVERSITY
Queen Mary University is a place where people from every background are encompassed. This variation leads to a comprehensive school of thought. Through its multifaceted events, this society will strive to achieve unity and integrity in diversity.
SAFE SPACE TO FEEL HEARD
Taking into consideration the proliferation of Human Rights in the world at large, the violations of the same breed of sentiments and ideas which demand to be discussed. Human Rights Society will aim to provide people who might be hurt by gross global violations a medium to express and feel heard.
RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT GLOBAL HUMAN RIGHTS STRUGGLES
The society will foster and engage in ways to highlight and promote world affairs concerning human rights among students. Human Rights violation in any sphere impacts the world at large; therefore, it is important to popularise and encourage such issues to be addressed at the university level.
PLANS FOR THE SOCIETY
The key goal is not to restrict events to the periphery of academics but to accommodate the wide-ranging cultural and social events as well. This objective is also tailored to meet the foundation goal of popularising the notion of human rights and providing a forum to induce thoughts from diversity. The activities will range from being academically inclined to holding competitions like elocution, advocacy and journal writing along with talks from professionals to social and cultural events like game nights, sports events, and so on.
