Global Seminar: International Human Rights

In this Seminar, students study international human rights violations and possible remedies in a variety of contexts, examining the history, development, and structure of human rights protection. Examine human rights in action through Irish case studies and with opportunities to learn directly about the work of organizations such as the Irish Innocence Project and the Cities in Transition Project. The Seminar also includes guest lectures by key figures engaged in human rights protection. Learn outside of the classroom with a weekend visit to Belfast and Londonderry/Derry to witness the main sites of civil rights events and meet local experts. Set in Dublin the contrast between new and old facilitates diversity seen through European and Asian influences.
