The Charter on Citizens’ Rights which was unveiled by President Hassan Rouhani at a ceremony last week will be offered as a university course. “The charter will be integrated into the curricula of university students across the country to raise public awareness on their rights and help them become acquainted with their political, legal, economic, cultural and social rights,” said Legal Advisor to President Majid Ansari, IRNA reported. The charter draws a clear perspective of the rights of citizens, which are dispersed in a large number of laws, and commits all government bodies to ensure their enforcement.
