This unit explores the interrelationship between human rights, peace and justice in theory and in practice. We examine the philosophical underpinnings, legal instruments, political struggles and ethical challenges involved in understanding and attaining human rights locally and globally. Students will engage in debates about global responsibilities for the prevention and prosecution of mass human rights violations and the means of promoting peace with justice through specific rights such as those of women, refugees, indigenous peoples and the non-human environment.
