The thesis is a two-fold response to how human rights awareness can be integrated into fiction for secondary schools. The exegesis – framed by the interdisciplinary perspectives of human rights, human rights education, and comparative literature – examines African understandings of human rights against universalist ideas, discusses the relationship between rights and fiction, and analyses five short stories by African writers. My creative work is a collection of ten short stories that interrogate complexity around human rights.
