Course Description: This course concentrates on the way conceptions of human rights have developed, and how they have determined worldwide international relations. Since the end of the nineteenth century, ideas on human rights and the obligation to develop have played an increasingly large role in international relations. Intellectuals and state officials in all parts of the world have let themselves be led by these notions, even in the era of imperialism when colonial rulers formulated the obligation to develop their colonies. In non-western countries, ideas on equality, human rights, and development became increasingly prominent as a part of the battle against colonial domination. The mission of promoting peace and development in the world became even stronger after decolonization, and is reflected by developmental aid and humanitarian interventions in conflict zones. Students take an in-depth look at the backgrounds to humanitarian thought, and the various ways it manifests itself. They not only look at the formal relations between states, but also at non-state actors, such as businesses and NGOs, with attention to both western and non-western actors. Students use literature, published sources and archives to conduct research on a specific case of developmental relations or humanitarian intervention.
