Course Objectives After World War II, it is observed that for international society, there has been a rising sensitivity on the determination and protection of human rights with decolonization movement and other significant political developments. In this way, the course deals with international documents, international control organs and international enforcements related with human rights. At that point, Universal Declaration of Human Rights is taken as the basis of the course. In addition to the legal dimension of the human rights, another objective of the course is present both theoretical and practical knowledge on the clash between human rights conception as an ethical norm and national interests of the states.
Course Content Starting with the theoretical and conceptual background of human rights, the course analyzes the historical development of human rights particularly by the second half of the twentieth century. After discussing the main principles and characteristics of the human rights, the course scrutinizes the content and deterrence feature of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as international organizations and mechanisms that are supposed to protect human rights. The course ends with ones of the toughest paradoxes of the current international politics: Especially by the emergence of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the nation-states - which must be the most significant preserver of the human rights - are political subjects which violate the human rights in the most excessive manner at the same time.
