Instructor J. Paul Martin
Course Description Prerequisites: Enrollment in the course is open to 18 undergraduates who have completed at least one core course in human rights and /or international law. Admission by permission from Dr. J.Paul Martin, Director, Human Rights Studies, e-mail: This single-semester seminar does not satisfy either the colloquium or senior essay requirement for Barnard Political Science majors. However, it does count toward the ten-course major and five-course minor requirements. This course provides a board view of the development of the UN, international law and organizations, their evolution and their role in world affairs today.  Students study the primary concepts and principles governing international law and organizations, while focusing on contemporary human rights and humanitarian challenges. The course will consist primarily of presentations and discussions, drawing heavily on the practical application of theory to actual experiences and situations.
