DESCRIPTION:

The aim of the course is to offer students a historical account of how the concept of human rights has developed as a political ideal invoked in different political struggles. Unlike a juristic approach that gives an insight into the development of human rights as a part of international and national legal frameworks or the philosophical account that offers insights into the very nature and logic of the concept, this course will concentrate on those political struggles and controversies that shaped the understanding of human rights we have today. In the seminar the students will be involved in a simulation of preparing work documentation for UN Human Rights Council on one of the following topics: torture + extraordinary renditions, human rights + drone strikes, genocide + humanitarian intervention, cultural relativism + group rights, human trafficking, human rights + the environment, sexual minority rights.
