Theory and Practice of Human Rights

Our interdisciplinary course examines the history, theoretical development and implementation of human rights. It is intended for those students who want to work in the field but also for students who are interested in the legal, political, sociological or ethical theory. Beyond the practical problems of human rights lie many unresolved theoretical and philosophical issues. These form the basis of our course which provides students with a solid grounding in fundamental matters of the law, politics, philosophy and sociology of human rights. It enables our students to undertake practical or legal work for human rights organisations.
