PLSC 434 - Human Rights


How do issues of ethical choice and human rights operate in the world of states?  Has the end of the Cold War meant that cosmopolitan ideals now hold greater sway among states than traditional ideas of national interests:  Or have terrorism, the “war on terror”, and continuing civil and ethnic conflicts undermined the (fragile) global network of legal and normative restraints?  This course considers ideas of philosophers like Thucydides and Kant in addition to concrete cases and dilemmas taken from contemporary international relations.
