Course topic: Political Human Rights under Pressure
Course dates: 3-9 September 2017
Course location: Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik/Croatia
Submission deadline: 1 April 2017
The annual course “The Diversity of Human Rights” addresses different problems within the human rights discourse. The course aims at an interdisciplinary debate, especially between philosophy, jurisprudence, and political science. Furthermore, the course intends to establish a dialogue between researchers and human rights activists from the region.
This year’s course topic focuses on the meaning and development of human rights of political participation (especially article 18 to 21 of the UDHR) and the options to strengthen these rights in the light of the recent political and social pressure on them.
The course’s aim is threefold: 1. to debate the proper interpretation of political human rights, 2. to discuss the specific implications of various political human rights and how they differentiate from each other, and 3. to review the relation of political human rights to other human rights and to possibly defend their claim to transnational implementation.
