Summary

Course description

Can there be space for human rights in world affairs? Who is responsible for the protection of human rights in world politics?

These theoretical and practical concerns form the central focus of the degree and are addressed through the compulsory course units.

This research route course is designed for students who wish to progress to PhD study. It will appeal particularly to those with an interest in the political and ethical issues that arise from widespread human rights violations globally. You will benefit from research and teaching initiatives which touch on important global issues.

The course will provide you with an advanced, critical, interdisciplinary and systematic understanding of human rights issues within a global context. It is an interdisciplinary degree which allows you exposure to developments in international politics and political theory in order to better understand the complex global environment in which human rights claims are made.
