International Human Rights

INFORMATIONS Description:

International human rights law in comparative perspective: How the individual has been protected from both public and private power. An open online course (MOOC) from the Faculty of Law and criminology of Louvain (Pr. Olivier De Schutter).

What you'll learn

Human rights develop through the constant dialogue between international human rights bodies and domestic courts, in a search that crosses geographical, cultural and legal boundaries. The result is a unique human rights grammar, which this course shall discuss and question, examining the sources of human rights, the rights of individuals and the duties of States, and the mechanisms of protection. We shall rely extensively on comparative material from different jurisdictions, to study a wide range of topics including, for instance, religious freedom in multicultural societies, human rights in employment relationships, economic and social rights in development, or human rights in the context of the fight against terrorism.
