About Humanity Matters


With a primary focus on human rights in the key areas of race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender, and specialisation in genocide, a key objective of Humanity Matters NZ is to provide curriculum-based materials for educators and students on human rights and case studies on genocides around the world.
