Course Description

"Presents human rights issues in an international context, exploring major tensions such as how universal or culturally relative rights should be. From the philosophy of “the right to have rights” to contemporary policy dilemmas on immigration and ethnic minority rights, this class unpacks rights assumptions and assesses “real world” solutions. What are human rights? Who deserves them? How are they protected? What obligation do states and citizens have to ensure rights are not violated? Students review Latin American, US, and African case studies to explore the pressing human rights issues of our time."
