HRTS GU4900 UN HUMAN RIGHTS BODIES: IMPACT – REFORM – ADVOCACY. 4 points.

The course seeks to combine critical reflection with practical application. It encourages students to take a birds‐eye view on the UN human rights system, its challenges and the need for reform. The main research project will focus on the question of impact of Special Procedures and strategies to improve their effectiveness. At the same time, the course will bring in the perspectives of advocates who seek to make the most of the system as it currently exists and discuss their strategies for advocacy. The course seeks to convey an understanding of the different interests and strategies at play and will bring human rights bodies to life through role plays, debates and practical assignments. We will explore different types of presentation and writing through these assignments designed to develop practical advocacy skills through experiential learning.
