Overview

How do individuals, communities and governments approach human rights differently across the globe? How do these differences in human rights laws impact relationships between states? How does globalisation affect international relations?

You will study topics including, but not limited to:

The promotion and protection of human rights
Society and modern revolutions
-Patterns of migration
International development
Lessons from modern history
