The course provides an overview of modern international human rights law, including its history and development since the 1940s. It considers domestic, regional and international legal systems -including international criminal law- and the extent to which they incorporate and implement economic, social and cultural as well as civil and political rights. It also studies contemporary political and theoretical debates over the scope and interpretation of human rights law, such those involving the rights of indigenous peoples, women's rights and the right to economic development.
