Surprised? Well, it is true! There are many injustices in the world that we usually do not come to think of in our everyday lives. The more you know of what is happening in the world and in the communities close to you, the better equipped you are to make a positive change. We are all responsible for making the world a better place – including you! Without sufficient knowledge you cannot act. Accept the challenge and test your knowledge of human rights!
THE HUMAN RIGHTS QUIZ provides information on human rights and their realization in different parts of the world. The guiding principles of the quiz are equality and the elimination of all forms of discrimination. The quiz is mainly targeted at young people but it is challenging enough also for adults – for anybody interested in the globalised world and its current challenges.
The human rights quiz is based on a board game (Ihmisoikeuspeli) published in Finnish in 2007. The board game was created by a voluntary working group consisting of a number of professionals in the field of training and education in cooperation with several civil society organizations.
The questions in the human rights quiz have been updated in autumn 2011. However, it should be noted that depending on the question, the newest statistical information available may have dated back several years.
