INR 7428/Lecture/A - Human Rights and Global Politics | Credits 4.00
This course offers an in-depth examination of the concept and practice of human rights through the lens of global politics. The course explores theoretical and historical assessments of the origins and theoretical foundations of the concept of human rights across a range of traditions, from liberalism to Marxism and post-colonialism. It further examines and evaluates the legacy of ideals of human rights within Western and non-Western contexts and the problem of universalism in particular. The course will chart the expansion of liberal conceptions of right and will interrogate tensions between state sovereignty and principles of universal right. The course will closely examine a number of international rights regimes and students will have an opportunity to assess the work of international organisations, non-governmental organisations, states and other actors in the enforcement and promotion of human rights.
