Shuibat, Mohammad; Abu Samra, Mahmoud; Shuibat, Nida
World Journal of Education, v5 n5 p42-50 2015
This paper presents a historical background of the Palestinian education. It outlines a theoretical basis for the development of Human Rights Regimes. The paper tackles the views of some philosophers like Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau and Kant who laid down the foundations for the development of Human Rights Regimes. The paper illustrates that Human Rights grounded in the oldest European civilizations such as in Greek philosophy and in Roman moral and legal thought. Moreover, the paper shows how natural law, social contract, civil constitution and natural rights provide a solid grounding and justification for the development of Human Rights Regimes. After that, the paper tackles the role of education in upholding Human Rights, its approaches, its goals and objectives. The case of the Palestinian universities regarding this matter is also presented.
