This course explains and explores what is at issue, addressing hard questions by drawing on a diversity of theoretical approaches and practical experiences. Human rights and international conflicts confront us with the most urgent moral and political issues of our time. Theoretically, we are confronted with the issue of how to reconcile unconditional rights with consequentialist ethics of political responsibility and rival ideologies of social order. Practically, we are confronted with particular powers, interests and conflicts demanding judgement and action that is at once moral and pragmatic. The course will explore such issues and attempt to cultivate such judgement. The course provides both a solid academic grounding in human rights and international relations and a wide choice of optional modules. You'll be trained in research methodology, before completing a 12,000-15,000-word dissertation dealing in depth with a subject of your choice.
