The Atlas of Human Rights

Mapping violations of freedom around the globe

KS5: ages 16+Book

Inspired by the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this book uses full-colour maps and graphics to illustrate and compare violations of human rights – and their impacts – in countries around the world. The book covers a wide range of topics and is divided into seven key parts:

  • State, identity and citizenship
  • Judicial violations and legal restrictions
  • Freedom of expression and censorship
  • Conflict and migration – Discrimination
  • Women’s rights
  • Rights of the child.

It also has a chapter of country profiles, summarizing the main human rights issues in many different countries and providing background statistics and data.

Whilst not specifically aimed at schools this book provides teachers with excellent background information that can be used in lessons or as a source of research for older students.
