POLI 437 - International Human Rights Law (3)


In this course we study human rights law and the many actors and institutions struggling with its enforcement. In it we use the case method to master the legal contours of human rights and explain their limits and possibilities. To understand contemporary human rights law, one has to have a good grounding in the philosophical, political and legal concepts that form the basis of international human rights. We also focus our study on efforts to find domestic and international justice, and the relationship between human rights and international law. We introduce the legal elements of various human rights provisions and take into account the role that NGOs play in the protection and sustenance of human rights regimes. Finally, we examine several specific rights through efforts to enforce them in domestic and international courts. Recommended Preparation: POLI 230 , POLI 233 , POLI 280 , POLI 337 , POLI 432 , POLI 433  OR POLI 482 .
