Human Rights

This course is a comprehensive historical overview of the theory and practice of human rights, a term used to describe rights and entitlements that inherently belong to every human being. Although all human beings are entitled to these rights equally, history has shown that all people do not enjoy the same protection of their rights at all times. This course explores the different kinds of human rights, the various international and regional documents necessary to protect and enforce them, and the historical difficulties and conflicts that have occurred in spite of, and often because of, human rights. It includes extensive discussions on the development of the various human rights treaties and enforcement mechanisms, the special protection given to vulnerable groups, human rights during armed conflict, and current debates involving human rights, such as the use of technology either to promote or restrict human rights, and the increasing international significance of stateless actors like transnational corporations and terrorist groups. Fifteen lessons.

Ce cours est une vue d'ensemble historique de la théorie et de la pratique des droits de l'homme, un terme utilisé pour décrire les droits et privilèges qui appartiennent intrinsèquement à tout être humain. Bien que tous les êtres humains bénéficient de ces droits de manière égale, l'histoire a montré que toutes les personnes ne jouissent pas de la même protection de leurs droits en tout temps. Ce cours explore les différents types de droits de l'homme, les différents documents internationaux et régionaux nécessaires pour protéger et faire respecter ces droits, et les difficultés historiques et les conflits qui ont eu lieu en dépit de, et souvent à cause, des droits de l'homme. Il inclut des discussions approfondies sur le développement des divers traités relatifs aux droits de l'homme et des mécanismes de mises en application, la protection spéciale accordée aux groupes vulnérables, les droits de l'homme pendant les conflits armés, et les débats actuels portant sur les droits de l'homme, tels que l'utilisation de la technologie pour promouvoir ou restreindre les droits de l'homme, et l'importance internationale croissante des acteurs apatrides tels que les sociétés transnationales et les groupes terroristes. Quinze leçons.

"Some of the concepts were not too clear. Especially for me who I am not an expert in Laws. I had to seek for complementary information in the Internet. However, I consider it is a challenger course, the hardest until now. It is very interesting and has relevant information."

Le fait d'aborder le cours sous l'angle international a élargi mes horizons. En outre la traduction en français est meilleure que pour le cours sur les Principes et Orientations. Merci POTI, merci Jessica C. Lawrence."

"I am very interested in the context of human rights. It really covers almost every aspects of the life, particularly in the area of various types of vulnerable persons rights. In addition, the thing that I like is the implementation and the enforcement of all the treaties contained by inernational community headed by UN so that oppressed peoples can live in peace and harmony forever. Nowadays the international community has implicitly turned a blind eye for what is happening in the contemporary world of serius human rights violations as if there is no so-called United Nations Organization, which is the only party that can observe and maintain peace and security. From this very forum I strongly appeal to the conscience of the world to fully carry out its obligations towards the humanity."
