This course will examine the integration of women’s human rights into the UN international human rights system through study of several relevant UN bodies, treaties and declarations. The course will consider contestations and defenses of applications of human rights to women's issues. Many human rights advocates (local, national and international) realize that human rights principles gain meaning and traction in dialogue with local principles, politics and ideas of justice. The course will examine dialogues about how women's human rights are negotiated and implemented.
