Human Rights Workshop: Current Issues and Events (20134). 2 units. The Human Rights Workshop provides an opportunity to discuss scholarship, practice, and policy bearing on issues broadly related to human rights. Conducted in workshop format, the course will feature recent writings in the field, presentations by scholars and practitioners, and pertinent current events. The topic of the workshop this semester will be the theory and practice of social and economic rights. Our concerns will be interdisciplinary as we look to the history and implementation of these rights, as well as their relationship with globalization and development. The workshop will meet weekly, with guest speakers every other week. In off weeks, students will read and discuss texts written by the speakers or relevant to their presentations. Requirements include active participation in the seminar and a research paper on a topic to be approved by the instructors. Students may earn an additional credit if they wish to produce a major research paper. Paper required. P.W. Kahn and J.J. Silk.
