Course Description & Objectives: 

The study of human rights is designed to introduce the student to the evolution of the concept of the protection of human dignity, through its natural law origins to its modern positivist re/statement in conventions and resolutions at the international and regional settings.  This particular component of the course will explore the protection of human rights within the regional systems (Europe, Americas, Africa and recently Asia). The emphasis shall lie with the philosophical basis of rights, mechanisms for the protection, supervision and implementation, and the process of determination of complaints or petitions before the organs of these systems.

Learning Outcomes: 

It is expected that by the end of the course students should have a thorough understanding of the philosophy of human rights and its evolution. The different sources and categories of human rights should also have been understood. Importantly, students should have the knowledge and skills to relate human rights to contemporary challenges in economic, social and political arenas of life.
