POL 297A - Topic: International Law and Human Rights

Course Description: This course is intended for advanced students eager to explore the topic of international law and human rights. We will use novels/theoretical pieces (such as Eichmann in Jerusalem and Body in Pain) to explore the political philosophy underlining international law, particularly in the context of human rights. How did this concept develop? What power relationships and disciplinary methods are involved or invoked? What are the implications for stopping egregious practices? Students will explore case studies in the class as well as in independent research projects to understand international human rights law "in practice".
