What can a human rights framework grounded in liberation and justice offer higher education ways of working and teaching practices? How does the human rights imagination and universities intersect with other transformation approaches such as social justice, decolonization, anti-racism, transitional justice, and inclusion and diversity?

These are some of the questions posed by Felisa Tibbits, UNESCO Chair in Human Rights and Higher Education in Utrecht University (Netherlands), for the webinar Emancipatory Human Rights and Higher Education, an invitation to explore these questions “even more pressing as higher educations institutions are called the public good in a post coronavirus world”.
