LAW412 International Human Rights Law


International Human Rights Law imposes obligations on States, making them accountable internationally for the treatment of persons at the hands of government institutions and officials and, to some extent, private persons. In this course you will examine the nature, theoretical underpinnings and historical development of human rights law. You will study the supra-national institutions and mechanisms concerned with the protection of universal human rights and the challenges associated with the implementation of the laws in the domestic sphere, in Australia and other countries.
