Primary Instructor:

To better understand the influence of human rights norms in global politics, this course examines the political institutions and processes through which international human rights regimes have emerged, as well as the various mechanisms for the enforcement of human rights at the national, regional, and international levels. The course will explore the different roles and obligations of international actors (including states, corporations, international organizations, and individuals) in the promotion of human rights. The course will also analyze human rights in specific contexts, including armed conflict and humanitarian intervention, along with the rights of women and indigenous peoples. The interaction between politics and law will illuminate the development and progression of international human rights as a universal aspiration.

This course is in the Public Law and World subfields.

Course Requirements:

The course is open to all students who have taken one course in Political Science. While some familiarity with international relations theory and the traditional sources of international law will be helpful, it is not required.
