POL 430 - Human Rights


The history, theory, and defense of human rights from their articulation in the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration to the present are the focus of this course. In-depth case studies of human rights violations around the world provide the basis for examining the legal and philosophical basis for human rights, as well as the function of both political and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in their implementation and defense. The practical aspects of the topic are stressed through guest lectures, site visits, teleconferencing, and direct action/service learning.  Satisfies the Values and Ethical Reasoning General Education requirement.
