Experts in the Media – UMW’s Eric Bonds on With Good Reason discussing human rights and the fact we all still have a lot to learnJune 2, 20211 min read
Human rights are one of the few basic and universal aspects shared by people across the globe. But is the concept of human rights being taught and its importance shared and put into practice here at home?
Recently, UMW’s Associate Professor of Sociology Eric Bonds, the author of “Social Problems: A Human Rights Perspective," sat down with Sarah McConnell, the host of With Good Reason to discuss the topic.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in the world. But it’s not typically taught in American classrooms. Eric Bonds says we could learn a lot from studying the document and applying its moral framework to our communities right here in the United States.
