We will examine key debates in the human rights scholarship, the diffusion of human rights ideas and norms, advocacy strategies for human rights protection and promotion, and the impact of the United Nations and international human rights organizations. Through readings and discussions, students will be encouraged to examine human rights policies and practices analytically, identify assumptions and gaps in the literature, and propose new ways to effectively improve states- human rights practices.
