Human Rights and Development
This course provides a comprehensive overview of human rights law and how it works in the field of development. The course balances the theory with the urgently practical - for example, combining the necessarily comprehensive detail of human rights legislation with the complex reality of situations of extreme poverty or oppression. You will also examine the increasingly important link between environmental law and its impact on human rights - how and when the laws align or come into conflict over the protection of these two important issues. Beyond the critical subject matter found in the core modules, you will enjoy a degree of freedom in directing your own study path through the choice of option modules. In addition, you will explore the subject-specialism of your choice by researching and writing your Master's dissertation. This is your opportunity to select a project topic which has a direct bearing on your professional life and our previous LLM students have found this to be an invaluable opportunity to establish a successful career. As a student at Aberystwyth, you will be taught by staff who participate in the national and international debates and policy-making in legal, criminological and other related fields. Under their personal tutelage, you will develop your rigorous analytical skills, your abilities in presenting clear and focused arguments and your capacity for independent thought. You will also benefit from their subject-specific expertise that is borne of dynamic hands-on research.
