International Human Rights

The course gives you the opportunity to examine intellectually the subject from various angles - minority protection, human rights at times of war, the prosecution of international criminals, to name a few. It helps the student appreciate and understand how international law intervenes to protect human rights and where the gaps are in international law. The course provides you the opportunity to study from established international law scholars at the City Law School some of the most significant issues in international human rights protection facing the world today.
