This course is divided into three sections—1) human rights law in substance and theory; 2) case studies; and 3) practice. It covers the doctrines that constitute international human rights law, the legal fora in which those laws are enforced and/or adjudicated, the controversies surrounding the application of human rights law in the Middle East, and the politics informing the discourse of human rights in the Middle East. Among the themes examined throughout the course are: the objectivity of the law; the universality versus the cultural relativity of human rights; and the impact of international relations on the application of human rights law and accountability for violations.
