Executive Summary

The Writing Wrongs project involves the creation of an on-line multimedia magazine that curates and displays innovative content relating to the study and promotion of human rights (both within and outside the University). It will provide a forum for encouraging and developing creative methods of knowledge dissemination. Unlike the Medical School’s ‘Values Exchange’ the Writing Wrongs Project is focused on the commissioning and publication of the highest quality writing/expression on human rights related topics. Its content will include, but is not limited to:

  • Interactive text
  • Video
  • Animation
  • Photographs
  • Artwork
  • Book reviews
  • Original articles on current events
  • Original investigative journalism on local/national/international human rights issues
  • Creative writing (fiction and non-fiction, poetry and prose)

The project will allow students, staff and a range of communities beyond the university to participate in a completely new way of thinking, learning, and writing about human rights. It will provide a platform for students to engage with staff, human rights practitioners, campaigners, civil society groups and others in a completely different and radically more empowering way.
