Description

This course will provide an overview of the evolution of international human rights law, including the contours of various rights, their differences from and similarities to domestic civil rights, and ongoing debates over the relationship between rights and culture. In addition, we will examine in the various processes for the protection of human rights, including United Nations oversight bodies and regional human rights courts in Europe and Latin America. The invocation of human rights concerns into interstate relations concerning peacekeeping, humanitarian intervention, international criminal law, and trade and investment will also be considered.
