BLM Series: The Making of Human Rights

The Black Lives Matter series continues with Miss McPartland presenting the different theories as to the establishment of human rights before analysing Dembour's protest school of thought in more detail. Providing strong historical and present day evidence (putting the article in the context of the BLM movement), it is argued that the protest school of thought is the most accurate and relevant theory behind the establishment of human rights. The article then moves on to a deeper analysis- combatting potential and regularly raised arguments against the use of protest and violence before ending with, it might be said a slightly negative but realist, conclusion that Dembour's protest school of thought will always be relevant.

Balancing the Right to Freedom of Religious Practice, FGM and the impact of COVID-19

In her article, Miss Nouka addresses the sensitive topic as to what extent individual's should be allowed to express their right to religious freedom. She examines the importance of having such a right before noting that it should not be unqualified due to detrimental practices, such as female genital mutilation, that can occur when it is left unregulated. Greater detail is then given about the practices of FGM, the role it plays within religious communities, the failure of state intervention to prevent the oppressions of both young and old women as a result of this practice being carried out and the best ways of stopping it.
