Human rights have become so imbued with European culture that it has become difficult to analyse them with critical distance. The aim of this course is to provide students with an academic,  broad and critical understanding of human rights.

To this end, the course will first focus on the content of international and regional human rights instruments, the various mechanisms of protection – in particular the European Court of Human Rights – and the interpretation given to the main human rights.

In a second phase, the teaching will focus on a series of specific issues such as the anthropological foundations of human rights, interpretation techniques, human rights and common goods, human rights and cultural diversity, human rights and democracy, human rights and supranational powers, human rights and transhumanism.
