INST 2203 - Justice, Human Rights, and the Law

Hours: 3
Human rights are said to be substantive moral protections that all persons have simply in virtue of being human. That these protections are identified as rights indicates that they are of the utmost moral priority. It also indicates that they belong to particular individuals who, in light of their rights claims, can make certain demands of others, especially governments, and are essential for promoting justice. This course examines the existence, content, nature, universality, and justification of human rights (both in general and in their particularity). Additional applied human rights and global justice issues we might consider are environmental rights, cultural rights, and interventionism.
