Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course is open to students from all faculties. Since the course will be taught in English, and active course participation is expected, good knowledge of English is required.
This class introduces the students to the origin, development and current relevance of the international human rights regime. Its major focus is on the Council of Europe and the system of the United Nations. Using case studies and practical examples, it deals with the normative content of selected human rights provisions and treaties as well as with the (quasi-) judicial and political-diplomatic mechanisms for the monitoring and enforcement of human rights.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

1) One short paper on a topic of choice,
2) final written exams,
3) thorough preparation and active course participation.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

A short paper as well as participation in the written exam are mandatory to pass the course. The exam will account for 60%, the paper for 35% of the grade. Oral participation will count for the last 5%, especially helping students who have almost reached a better grade to improve their score.
Students who do not attend the first session and are unexcused will be deregistered from the course. The same holds true for students who miss more than two sessions.
