Human Rights in World Politics (3008GIR)

How has the rise of human rights changed the post-Cold War world? And has the human rights agenda been a progressive one in world politics? In asking such questions, this course explores the place of human rights in contemporary political change. This involves analysing the role of human rights in current global transformations such as: the emergence of global governance; the legitimation of humanitarian intervention or "Just War" as in the cases of the humanitarian interventions of the 1990s and the war in Iraq; the emergence of a global civil society and transnational activism such as Amnesty International and the transformation of state power and sovereignty. This course is offered: Gold Coast: Trimester 2 Day (only in even years) Nathan: Trimester 2 Day (only in odd years) Incompatible: 3008PPP Human Rights in Worlds Politics.
