教育目標

Since the adoption of UDHR in 1948, human rights have become an integral part of world politics. As the social phenomena that involve growing implications, scholars adopt different perspectives to tackle the character and pattern of human rights politics. The major objective of this seminar is to familiarize students with social scientific study of human rights. In additional to normative contemplation and philosophical debate, human rights could, and should be analyzed via the tools and methods of empiricism. The course will be divided into three sections. We will begin by introducing background knowledge about human rights, including the definition, scope, and philosophical reflection. Secondly, we will discuss the scientific approach to human rights study and how this approach is conducted. The last part of this seminar consists a variety of topics noticed by political scientists. Important issues such as regime type, foreign aid, the effectiveness of international law, and the role of advocacy groups will be studied in detail.
