LAW 330P - International Human Rights Practicum.


In this practicum, students will learn how to apply the primary international and regional human rights treaties to real-world human rights problems. Student teams will work in partnership with international non-governmental organizations based in the U.S. or domestic human rights organizations based in Africa to promote human rights and seek redress for human rights violations. Projects may involve human rights fact-finding, legislative advocacy, test case litigation, local capacity-building, and other forms of human rights advocacy. Fieldwork abroad will be a component of the projects whenever possible, and all projects will involve careful consideration of the ethics of cross-cultural human rights advocacy. By engaging in extensive legal and policy analysis of real human rights problems, primarily in Africa, students will develop a better understanding of the challenges and social justice potential of the human rights framework.Five hours.Bond
