Human Rights

The course looks at how far human rights are enshrined in definitions of citizenship and to what extent they form the basis of national and international law. In addition it explores the extent to which human rights are enshrined in and supported by a deeper politics and culture, by institutions, structures, movements and values. It deals with political developments in the UK, in Europe and internationally. Students look at nation-states, international and transnational organisations, but also at campaigning movements and pressure groups. This involves both the study of the current international situation and of relations between states and non-state actors where conflicts have resulted in considerable violations of human rights. It also looks at the challenges and demands that have resulted from the continual and growing movements of people, refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.
