Human rights pressures on governments come from many directions. We will explore their conceptual foundations and tensions among them by investigating national human rights practices worldwide in relation to international and regional covenants (like the Geneva Conventions, the American Convention on Human Rights, the African [Banjul] Charter); international and regional bodies (like the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the European Court of Human Rights); independent governmental agencies (like the US Helsinki Commission); and the NGOs (like Human Rights Watch). We will also look in some detail at human rights monitoring in the former Soviet Union.
