Description“Human rights” – everyone seems to discuss them, but few seem to understand them, or utilise them correctly. Whether it’s the war in Syria, resulting in millions of refugees looking for safety, or the Greek financial crisis, or cuts to welfare benefits, the term “human rights” is often used but not often well explained.
International human rights law is about the way the international community answers serious questions about the relationship of individuals to the state, and the relationship between individuals living together within a community. This course will examine current topics in international human rights law, drawing on relevant news and events from 2016 to consider what human rights law actually says – rather than what it sounds like through the media and politicians looking to score big headlines.
The course will combine the theory of human rights law with practical applications, concentrating on binding legal standards and the cases that have been used to interpret these standards.
The course is in English, allowing students to develop their knowledge while practicing with a working language of the UN and relevant international courts and tribunals. The course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills appropriate for private or public legal service.
