LAW6034 International Human Rights Law


The demand for international human rights law is growing and demand far exceeds supply. This International Human Rights law module aims to provide students with a unique and thorough practical and theoretical understanding of the subject. The module will also examine the effectiveness of the United Nations system of human rights protection as well as the European, Africa and Inter-American systems. International human rights law is challenging and will provide students with practical knowledge of how to use international human rights law and plead human rights cases. The module will also contribute to the development of a comparative and cross-cultural perspective on the basic rights and freedoms. The module will focus on civil and political rights and on economic, social and cultural rights. The protection will be analysed from the perspective of industrialised and developing states.
