International Human Rights Law
The course addresses the foundations of International Human Rights Law, with reference to both the substantial features of the discipline (ie the content of human rights) and the procedural avenues and mechanisms allowing individuals to seek redress for violations. A specific focus on economic, social, and cultural rights will be provided throughout the course. Accordingly, the impact of climate change, disasters and emergencies, and migration, among other things, on the implementation of States’ obligations is addressed. The issue of business and human rights is also thoroughly addressed.
