Description

The goal of this course is to analyze efforts by the international community to establish effective mechanisms by which mass atrocities and torture can be prevented. We attempt this through a thorough review of normative and doctrinal frameworks, as well as a practical learning component. The course will examine the architecture of the universal and regional human rights protection systems and limitations on prevention capabilities; the role of political organs like the Security Council in protecting the lives of populations at risk; and the efforts to create preventative mechanisms in political, diplomatic, and legal spheres.
