We cannot have rights without responsibility

Key concepts: Connection, perspective, responsibility

Related concepts: Human Rights, citizenships


Lines of inquiry:
  • What we think our rights are, and should be
  • What responsibilities we must take to make these rights a reality
  • What happens if people do not keep to their responsibilities
  • Why all communities make and revise agreements about rights and responsibilities in order to live together.

Article 42 UNCRC (United Nations Children's Rights Charter) states that governments should:

undertake to make the provisions of the Convention widely known, by appropriate and active means, to adults and children alike.

This unit of inquiry supports this aim.
