Lecturer Takes Students Through Human Rights in Education

Where ethics meets economics

Dr Munir Moosa Sadruddin, hailing from Karachi, Pakistan, has made a name for himself internationally as a pioneer of human rights education. Recently, he delivered a lecture to Wittenborg students on his the socioecoethical model to foster positive values for sustainable practices. He created his lecture to convey his model as well as the importance of human rights education. “Students will acquire knowledge about human rights education, including its development and significance. They will also become familiar with the socioecoethical model of human rights education and its application,” he explains.  

He has an incredible background in the topic, with a PhD in Education, specialising in Human Rights Education, and serving as Assistant Professor of Education at SMI University in Pakistan. Sadruddin has produced important research, and is active within the education industry.   

“Throughout my career, I have gained extensive experience in teaching and conducting research,” he explains. “Additionally, I proudly hold the position of Volunteer Founder Director at the Global Forum for Teacher Educators,” he says. In this role, he works to promote inclusive, human-rights-centred education for underprivileged communities, including children, youth, women and individuals from diverse backgrounds. “I have had the privilege of delivering over 500 guest lectures worldwide on various topics, catering to diverse audiences.”  

Across his career, which has centred on humanitarianism and ethics, he has managed to achieve feats and milestones which most can only dream of. He has two top achievements which he is most proud of. Number one? “I have provided free online education to over half a million teachers globally through webinars, symposiums and conferences via my forum.” His second proudest achievement? Devising breakthrough models for human rights education.  

“I have proposed several innovative models to the world, including but not limited to Munir’s socioethical model of human rights education, Munir’s model of teachers’ identity exploration, ESteam Education, Munir’s socioethical model of inclusivity, Munir’s minimal intelligence theory and Munir’s Chameleon model of leadership.”  

Wittenborg is always privileged to host lecturers such as Dr Sadruddin, who serve as such prestigious examples of how centering on ethics and societal impact can propel one to success. By following his passion for ethics, education and the empowerment of others, he has been able to produce vital research and education models which have been proven to benefit the international community.
