Graduate Course Code: POL2212H1F L0101
Human Rights and International Relations
The major theme for the course is the relationship between international developments in human rights and domestic applications of those developments. We will examine the evolution of the international human rights regime, mostly from the post-World War II era, and understand how the radical steps forward in international law affect domestic lawmakers and leaders. We will also look at how domestic efforts shift the international debate, and how non-state actors engage in building the lingua franca of the 21st century.
Format and Requirements
One two-hour seminar per week. Course requirements TBA.
