Human Rights and the 2020 Elections
CSPL 397
Spring 2020
Section: 01  

This seminar will examine the principal candidates for the presidency (and selected candidates for other major electoral positions) from the perspective of human rights. To begin, we will spend the first several weeks studying basic human rights standards, as well as the challenges to the promotion of international human rights standards in the United States. We will then turn to particular rights and clusters of rights, considering the policies proposed by various candidates and their implications for human rights. After review of the particular right or cluster of rights, students will work in small groups to research and present the proposals of the various candidates to the class. In addition, representatives of the candidates will be invited to engage with the class (as well as in broader fora on campus).
