Media, Justice and Human Rights, 7.5 credits

The close ties between the media, justice and human rights are established and used as a basis for further discussions on responsibility and solidarity, especially those linked to crisis situations, and how this affects media in its different forms: the media as witnesses, the media as an arena for other witnesses, media reporting on human rights and justice, media reporting as a way to uphold human rights and/or justice/injustice, and so on. The focus is on areas such as climate change, migration, war and minorities, and reflects on how we relate to the "other", for example by using perspectives from cosmopolitanism theories. The cases studied spans many geographic areas and reaches across many different forms of media and media platforms (eg analog, digital, news, video games).
