Protecting Human Rights: Courts, Constitutions and Legislatures POL 330 (4)

How can we best protect human rights? How do we define what is a human right and what is not? We examine these questions within countries and at the international level. We will look at the courts-based approach versus systems that give politicians the final say. Prerequisite: Six lower division units in political science or permission of the department. Students with credit for POL 339 Selected Topics in Comparative Government and Politics under the title Protecting Human Rights may not take this course for further credit.
