Castan Centre launches human rights video series: ‘Have you got that right?’

Have you got that right?

The Castan Centre for Human Rights Law has launched a series of videos called ‘Have you got that right?’

The Castan Centre says the videos will answer important human rights questions “quickly, clearly and in a way that won’t put you to sleep”.

Episodes one to three – ‘What are human rights?‘, ‘Is there a human right to marriage equality?‘ and ‘Surveillance‘– are available now.

A new video will be released every fortnight. The project will be broken into a number of 10-episode series, each with a different theme. Series one blends comedy with academic content.

In its email launching the initiative the Castan Centre noted that ‘from the beginning of the project, we wanted to make something very different from typical academic videos. They had to be creative. They had to grab people’s attention, and they also had to inform people simply and quickly. We  have succeeded in creating something unexpected for a university-based research centre. We hope we’ve also created something fun and enjoyable, yet educational.’

There is more information about the project on the ‘Have you got that right?’ website, as well as links to lots of resources for everyone from secondary school students to academics.
