Course Description Human Rights have been part of the international landscape for over 70 years. From the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights onward we have seen the flourishing of human rights NGOs, advocates, and the promotion of human rights norms. Yet, many countries continue to violate the human rights of its citizens and most people do not enjoy the full protection of their human rights. In today’s world, many policy makers and scholars have begun to question whether human rights have made any difference at all. Yet other scholars argue that human rights have achieved many accomplishments and will continue to thrive. This course is designed to understand when and how human rights can be effective and sustainable. Some of the questions the course explores: how do we know if human rights policies work? How do we evaluate progress in human rights policies? How does one measure progress? Which are the most effective tools to promote human rights?
