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.
