INTL 208 - Human Rights and U.S. Foreign Policy Since 1945


1 unit(s)
(Same as HIST 208 ) This course examines U.S. National Security issues through the prism of human rights, weaving humanitarian concerns into the fabric of traditional security studies. We survey the most important literature and debates concerning the concepts of human rights and the U.S. national interest. We also use case studies to explore the intersection of human rights, economic aims, strategic concerns, and peace building. In addition, we test the consistency of U.S. guiding principles, the influence of non-state actors on policy formation, and the strength of the international human rights regime. Robert Brigham.

Not offered 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods.
