This course explores the evolution of the international human rights regime, focusing primarily on Post-World War II developments. Topics include: the existing body of international human rights law and organizations (design, historical evolution, organizational functions and dysfunctions), enforcement and compliance problems, issue-linkage, and the impact of non-state actors. We examine all three ‘generations’ of rights:

  1. civil and political;
  2. social, economic, and cultural; and
  3. special groups (e.g., minorities, women, children).
