Full event details

Human Rights: Theory and Practice

Philosophers and lawyers argue amongst themselves about how real human rights (freedom from torture?) can be distinguished from fake ones (a right to the internet?). However, this debate is also a political one. Human rights frameworks are often criticised as being ‘ideals’ detached from reality, but in fact these ideals have been shaped by real political struggles. This taster course illustrates the real-world underpinnings and effects of these apparently theoretical debates and introduces students to critical perspectives on human rights frameworks.
