Investigate the historical and social contexts of human rights movements, including the roles of culture, identity, political economy, and international law in four different countries.

On this program, human rights serves as an entry point to frame a broader inquiry into the nature of dehumanization, oppression, and life affirming movements for justice. You will examine how the rhetoric and reality of human rights varies in four different locales by examining relevant and timely human rights issues such as transitional justice, gender equity, the geopolitics of conflict, and the rights of refugees, migrants, and indigenous peoples.
