International Human Rights Law: Collective Rights
This course provides an advanced description, analysis and critical evaluation of the right to self-determination, a collective human right at the centre of the international human rights framework. Students are provided the opportunity to compare three leading case studies in the implementation of the right of self-determination, to understand the right's nature and scope in different contexts. The course will also consider emerging collective rights in the international law system, with particular focus on the role which rights to environment, sustainability and intergenerational equity might play in responding to the circumstances of persons displaced by climate change.
