Syllabus
Prerequisites: Knowledge of both methodological and substantive fundamentals of international relations and international organisation. Some prior knowledge of the European integration process is useful.
Target skills and knowledge: 1) to familiarise with a number of concepts of the current international relations and their interplay with human rights principles and standards;
2) to deepen the knowledge of the role and influence of human rights in contemporary international politics
3) to assess practices of MLG, international /European organisations and international politics which are relevant to understand the current challenges of the multipolar and multilateral world in view of a human rights –based approach.
4) apply both theoretical knowledge and practice-oriented skills to policy-making.
Examination methods: The integrated course (12 ECTs) proposes one overall grade, composed of two parts, reflecting Module A on "Human Rights in International Politics" and Module B on "Theory and Practice of Multi-level Governance". Each part consists of a combination of written assignments and oral presentations as indicated in the Syllabus of each Module, assessed separately. The final course grade will be the average resulting from the marks of each part.
Assessment criteria: The student will have to demonstrate a good command of the course topics, ability to analyse and critically approach issues dealing with the applied concept of MLG and its practices as well as with practice-oriented skills to policy-making in the international and European context, with particular attention to the human rights paradigm, demonstrating linguistic competence and using specific international organisation and human rights dictionary.
