Description

Students will learn about the practice of international human rights in its various manifestations through case studies, simulations, and other real-world cases. The practicum will introduce students to the actors involved in human rights, including states, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and business entities. They will further learn the major norms and rules governing human rights protection, both international and national. From these starting points, students will explore how these actors interact regarding contemporary human rights challenges, whether those related to a particular state or region (e.g., Syria or Xingiang) or global (migration or LGBTQ rights)

Course Requirements:

Requirements include in-person discussion and active learning tasks, readings, and preparation of short policy briefs, memoranda, essays, and related material.

Intended Audience:

Reserved for Donia Human Rights Fellows

Class Format:

We will have weekly meetings that require active oral participation. Some activities will involve group exercises. The course may also include meetings with guest speakers, video presentations, monitoring of intergovernmental meetings.

Meets 10/24/22-12/09/22 (Drop/Add Deadline: 11/07/22)
