Competing Visions of Human Rights
A Summer Leadership Institute for Teachers
July 6 - 9, 2010
Over the past several decades, human rights discourse has permeated international relations. Yet while the general principle of human rights has been broadly accepted, human rights abuses persist and the intricacies of the subject remain hotly contested.
While in attendance with the Choice Program at Brown University's Watson Institute for International Studies, participants will learn from leading scholars in the fields of international law and foreign policy, and will explore effective instructional strategies for engaging in the topic of human rights.
