HUMAN RIGHTS IN A CHANGING WORLD: LAW AS A TOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

This introduction to our course on human rights law provides students with a key understanding of basic human rights principles. In today’s legal, political and business worlds, international human rights law affects us all—the way we think, live and work—either explicitly or implicitly. All those involved in government, public policy, business and social work both require and benefit from having a thorough understanding of the breadth and depth of human rights principles.
