International human rights law has traditionally focused only on the relationship between the state and individuals, meaning that businesses and international economic institutions have escaped both responsibility and liability. By pursuing LLM International Human Rights Law (Economic Relations), students will learn about the challenges, pitfalls and (most importantly) the opportunities to pursue greater compliance by and accountability for economic actors when their activity harms human rights. Essex’s LLM International Human Rights Law (Economic Relations) builds off of the foundation LLM International Human Rights Law, meaning that students will take the same compulsory modules that will expose to them the theories, institutions and practice of international human rights law. Students will also take compulsory modules that address businesses' responsibility for human rights, and the relationship between human rights and international trade and investment law. Students will complement these compulsory modules with optional modules of their choosing, and then complete their degree with a dissertation focused on issues of human rights and economic actors and relations.
