The 20th century witnessed some of the world's most destructive wars and human-rights atrocities - most of them connected to war and conflict. This course examines the impact of war on human rights and the impact of human-rights law and activism on war. It addresses such topics as genocide and "ethnic cleansing," the role of international law, just-war theory, transnational peace activism, humanitarian interventions, environmental and resource-related sources of conflict, nonviolent movements for social change, terrorism and counterterrorism. The readings feature approaches from a range of disciplines, including political science, history, ethics, law, anthropology, political ecology, and gender studies. Course work consists mainly of reading, lectures, discussion (in lectures and in sections), and regular writing assignments.
