International Human Rights     LAW-713

Students are introduced to international human rights law, policy and practice both through learning the law and practice of human rights and by exploring important and emerging issues in the human rights field including the role of international and domestic actors, including the U.S. government and the United Nations, in implementing and enforcing human rights norms and standards. Together we will cultivate strategic thinking about global and national mechanisms of action and accountability of human rights, approaches to preventing and addressing human rights violations, as well as the role of social movements in advocacy and driving human rights practice and action. We will spend time on some of the central issues in the field today, including torture, health, and sexual rights.
