The course (a composition of lectures and seminars held in English) will concentrate on the social, historical and political context of international human rights systems. It will critically examine the development, the content, and epistemological and political privilege of various human rights treaties (the French Revolution’s Declaration of the Right of Man, UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR, 1948), Council of Europe’s European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR, 1950) and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (2000). It will look into a context, composition and cohesion of three generations of human rights and their nexus to citizenship rights. It will further point out specific critical approaches to human rights developed by various socio-political movements of the 20th and 21st centuries (anti-racism, postcolonial and subaltern critique, Marxism, feminist and gender equality, and environmental movements). The course will close with a reflection on intersectional, critical race and cosmopolitan theories and the future role of the state and society in upholding (human) rights vis-à-vis recent challenges of terrorism, wars and migration.
