Course contents / programme
The Council of Europe’s work in the field of human rights are now of significance across the globe. This course explores particular aspects of these innovative judicial and non-judicial standards and mechanisms of protection. We will focus upon 3 areas of particular interest: protection of physical integrity (life; prohibition of ill-treatment; deprivation of liberty); religious liberty; and aspects of personal autonomy. Participants will be expected to read the course materials in advance of the class (including primary source materials) and to take a leading part in group discussions and presentations.
