THE VIVA RIO SUMMER PROGRAM: HUMAN RIGHTS STUDIES IN BRAZIL RIO DE JANEIRO JUNE 3 - JUNE 21, 2002 Dear Friends: We are pleased to announce the summer program for Human Rights Studies in Brazil. The class will be held in Rio de Janeiro from June 3rd through June 21. During the three weeks, students will be affiliated with one of the most prestigious Brazilian NGOs, Viva Rio, which sponsors various comprehensive human rights programs throughout the city. Students will study the international human rights standards, the role of international and local NGOs in the Brazilian human rights movement, the everyday practice of human rights at the community level, the significance of human rights representation, and the role of human rights education (both formal and non-formal) in promoting human rights. During the course, we will have two sessions a day. The sessions will be either lectures, site-visits, or group discussions. We will be based out of the headquarters for Viva Rio. But many of our classes will be conducted in favela communities while visiting different NGOs. Students who are encouraged to apply include university students with a strong interest in human rights studies, emerging human rights scholars, students of visual media who wish to focus on human rights themes, and international NGO workers. The language of instruction will be English and international students must have a strong command of both oral and written English for lectures and discussions. The cost for the three week course will be US $1000. Airfare, housing, meals, and visa costs are not included in the tuition. For a detailed explanation of the course, the schedule, the faculty, accommodations, anticipated expenses, and an application, please send a email to the director of the Viva Rio summer program, Peter Lucas: <email@example.com>.
