The continuing aspiration of individuals and peoples to seek an environment where one is treated with equity, equality and justice represents the evolution of Human Rights. The concept of human rights, justice and human dignity date back to antiquity.
It is in the late 18th century that notions of individuals as the bearer of human become crystallized.
Thereafter in the post World War II period human rights were institutionalized as legal documents within international law as well as in national constitutional frameworks.
Human rights are conceptualized and practiced at multiple levels. From philosophical understanding of rights and duties, they can be understood as normative frameworks reflecting or challenging moral and ethical concerns, can work in tandem or in opposition to religious and customary practices and finally understood as a legal frameworks embedded in historical, social, political and economic contexts.
The debates on various facets of human rights law is to be understood within the contexts of colonization, post coloniality and globalization.
The objective of this course is to familiarize students to various aspects of human rights with a focus on national and international legal frameworks of human rights.
