Topics in Comparative Politics III
The Politics of Human Rights
This class will interrogate some of the major themes in Comparative Politics from a human right standpoint. The themes examined will include colonialism, democratization, development, economic reform, property rights, humanitarianism and international criminal justice. We will debate the extent to which many of these processes engender or undercut human rights. Students should gain knowledge of major human rights debates as well as insights into central themes in Comparative Politics.
