        <p>Participants will be able to:<br/><ul style='margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px'><li>Describe and familiarize with important theoretical (philosophical) and practical (legal and political) aspects of human rights.</li><li>Understand the differences and the complementarity between the perspectives on human rights</li><li>Relate the theoretical and practical conceptions of human rights to relevant contemporary debates</li><li>Formulate their personal opinions about human rights.</li><li>Develop critical thinking.</li></ul></p><!---->
        <p>Human rights play a central role in world affairs. As moral, legal, and political norms and standards, human rights are meant to protect individuals' and groups' fundamental rights and freedoms. Yet, human rights are constantly contested not only as a concept, but also as guidelines to address practical issues. Hence, this lecture, "Philosophy of Human Rights", is divided into two main parts:<br/>In the first part, we'll be looking into the following philosophical questions about human rights: <br/>-	What are human rights? What are their foundations? How do human rights relate to the individual, society, and world order? <br/>In the second part, we'll be investigating four topics in which the exercise of human rights faces complex challenges: <br/>-	Human rights and culture: are human rights "universal"? Can/should human rights comply with specific cultural demands?<br/>-	Human rights and freedom of movement: how to understand the right to freedom of movement in the context of immigration debates and the recent Covid-crisis?<br/>-	Human rights and business: Should multinational enterprises comply with human rights?<br/>-	Human rights and security: in contexts like terrorism, many states chose security at the expenses of freedom and privacy. How to justify such decisions, especially in light of the right to security? <br/>Although this course will focus on the philosophical aspects of human rights, it will also try to shed light on the interconnections between philosophy, law and politics.</p><!---->
        <p>Presentations, reading assignments, discussions and a written examination</p><!---->
        <p>No prior knowledge on human rights is required. But participants should have a genuine interest in the issue of human rights.</p><!---->
