Human Rights in International Politics

This is a module that examines theories of human rights since 1945, and the practice of promoting or rejecting these ideas as universal "goods" in international relations. Students will critically examine NGO issue advocacy, western states' "ethical" foreign policies; and the "Asian values" counter-challenge. This module relates the subject of human rights to political philosophy, international law, the UN system, morality, national interest, and values/ideology in foreign policy.
