International Human Rights: Laws, Mechanisms, and Practices

Course number: X12.9226
Tuition: $340
Sec. 1: Thurs. 6.20-8.25 p.m.
May 24-July 12 (8 sessions)

Taught by Maria Green, lawyer and director of the International
Anti-Poverty Law Center

International human rights are not vague concepts of justice. They are
precisely defined international laws, stemming from a series of treaties
and overseen by a complex of the UN and other mechanisms. This course
provides an introduction to international human rights laws (including
special laws that protect children, women, racial minorities, and other
groups); an explanation of the international procedures for overseeing
their protection; and the methods used by NGOs in human rights advocacy.
Particular attention is paid to international economic, social, and
cultural rights, including the human rights to food, health, housing,
education, and work.

More information on this course and the others offered for the
Certificates in International Affairs and Non-Governmental Organizations
may be found on the web at

An information session will also be held Friday, April 27th , 6-8 pm, 48
Cooper Square, 2nd floor.  Here you will have an opportunity to hear
from our director, Vera Jelinek, and some of our faculty.  It will be
your chance to speak to the faculty and ask questions.
