LAW 2882 - International Human Rights Law Seminar

This seminar examines both customary international law and treaties that govern the individual and collective rights of humans and the duties of states to respect those human rights.

The course uses a combination of lectures and discussions to explore the United Nations human rights machinery, regional structures and problems of enforcement in considering a wide range of human rights and state duties. The major international human rights instruments are dealt with in detail, including the United Nations Charter, the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights. Students take an examination, make a presentation and write a paper in this course. Enrollment is limited to 20 students.
