About this course:

The international regime of human rights is glorified by some as the most important achievement of the modern era, while its sceptics dismiss it as a myth or ‘toothless’. Can human rights be universal and practical in a world that is divided by ideology, religion, culture and political interests, when nations have not even succeeded in resolving their own domestic controversies relating to human rights? This course highlights the roadmap used to develop this regime and the controversies surrounding contemporary international law. The questions that are raised are many and complex: the recognized rights and freedoms, the justifications used for promoting human rights universally, and the institutions which promote and monitor their practical realization. Topics include: the right to life, the right to the protection from cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment, and the right to privacy and security.
