What Tavaana Students Have to Say

What I knew about human rights consisted only of a few scattered things, and I had forgotten about so many aspects. During the course, I got to know some concepts that I had known nothing about before. Now, I have a credible and varied understanding of democracy, human rights, freedom, and power.
