Department of Global Economy and Human Rights
The globalized economy and its (de-)regulation systems are influencing the living conditions of people worldwide. Human rights violations can be revealed in different locations along global value chains, for instance at existence-disrupting raw material extraction or at harmful production conditions.
Within the framework of the one-world promoter program of the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia the department of global society and human rights was set up. The department’s mission is to show up structures of the global economy that are currently violating human rights and consequently to provide potential solutions to those nuisances. This mission is going to be accomplished via educational activity and the teaching of multipliers, as well as networking and the development and publication of action-proposals.
