Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
You have to write one seminar paper (10 pages) on one of the films. The paper has to be written in English. The paper should approach the documentaries as case studies for a specific human rights issue. The film should be used as the starting point and the context of your analysis. The human rights law analysis is central, but your paper should not be limited to it. Elaborate on the political, historical, sociological etc. situation portrayed. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the seminar, you are encouraged to also apply methodology and expertise specific to your own academic background.
Attendance: If you miss more than one screening, you won´t be eligible to receive credits for the course. One absence can be accepted in urgent cases (please provide explanation PRIOR to the session that you are unable to attend).
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
The number of participants is limited to 25 students. Due to the high volume of applications we ask you to send a brief summary of your human rights background to firstname.lastname@example.org. Phd students, who fulfill the requirements will be admitted preferentially.
