Travel and study with Political Science professor Gary Uzonyi to The Hague, Netherlands.
Located less than an hour south of Amsterdam, the Netherlands’ 780 year old seaside seat of government has played a prominent role in shaping the purpose, design, and importance of human rights law since the end of the Cold War.
In this class, we will examine why states repress their people, form human rights law, and comply with international human rights standards.
While in The Hague, the class will visit the world’s most famous human rights courts, including the International Criminal Court, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the International Court of Justice, and the Peace Palace.
Students will have a chance to interact with human rights lawyers and practitioners, learning from those individuals who have played a critical role in punishing infamous war criminals and shaping modern international relations.
