GOVT-406 Human Rights/International Relations
Professor McMorrow
The adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, on December 10, 1948 may well turn out to have been the most significant human and political achievement of the twenty-century. Students in this seminar study the political theory and history of Human Rights doctrine, as well as the actions taken by the international community during the past fifty years to articulate, codify, and implement international and universal protections for human rights. Students also come to grips with some of the central theoretical and practical challenges to rights claims. They select a particular rights issue to research, and they present and complete a major seminar paper on that topic.
