Syllabus
Prerequisites: Knowledge of both methodological and substantive fundamentals of international relations and international organisation.
Target skills and knowledge: 1) to familiarise with a number of concepts of 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 multi-level governance, international /regional organisations and other international actors in international politics that are relevant to understand the contemporary challenges of the multipolar world from the perspective of human rights;
4) to assess the contemporary challenges to multilateralism at different levels of governance and their impact for the functioning of the multi-layered regime for the protection of human rights, both general human rights and human rights of individual subjects (such as persons belonging to national or ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities);
5) to 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 "Human Rights Political Analysis". 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 Multi-level governance and its practices as well as with practice-oriented skills to policy-making in the international context, with particular attention to the human rights paradigm, demonstrating linguistic competence, the ability to sustain an argument, and using specific international organisation and human rights dictionary.
