LAW 5047: The Inter-American Human Rights System: Doctrine, Practice and Advocacy

The Inter-American Human Rights System (IAHRS) has played a crucial role in opening up spaces for civil society to demand human rights protections in the region, increasing protections at the domestic level, and supporting civil society in its quest for accountability for massive human rights violations. The system has also played a role in civil society efforts to bring the human rights debate home, including in the United States. This course will provide an in-depth introduction to the history, doctrine, and practice of the IASHR, and will examine the obstacles and opportunities that civil society, victims, and advocates encounter when engaging the IAHRS. Elements used in grading: Attendance and class participation: 20%. Three (3) reflection papers: 30%. Final paper: 50%. SLS students may enroll in LAW 5047 (limited to five) when Axess opens for Spring Quarter enrollment. Additional law students may enroll with the instructor's permission. Cross-listed with Latin American Studies ( LATINAM 252). Meets outside the Law School.
