Course Description: This course introduces theoretical frameworks, empirical cases, policy instruments, and debates in the field of human rights. Students examine the evolution of human rights in its philosophical, historical, and political contexts, and they explore various mechanisms and actors for the promotion and protection of human rights at the global, regional, and national levels. The course explores the trajectory and effectiveness of humanitarian intervention and various forms of transitional justice. It addresses key questions such as How and why have international human rights standards come into being; What are the United Nations and regional mechanisms for human rights protection; Under what conditions is humanitarian intervention justified and necessary; and How should new democracies cope with past human rights abuses? In addressing these and other questions, students explore several country cases around the globe.
