Welcome to the Online Seminar "Human Rights in Tanzania

Was interessiert an Menschenrechten in Tansania

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 formulated fundamental rights for human coexistence. The process it started is a continuous challenge in all parts of the world. With the "African Charter of Human and Peoples' Rights", African countries have set their own accent and defined what is important to them in their situation. The Tanzanian constitution also recognises the importance of human rights. As in all states, there is a discourse in the society about the implementation of these rights. Freedom of opinion and freedom of assembly are current issues. The implementation of women's and children's rights or the right to health is being worked on continuously.

In this seminar we will look at the issue of human rights in Tanzania from various perspectives. Where are the challenges and how are the state, civil society and religions trying to respond to them?
