Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Georgina Mary Wheadon


This unit examines regional protection mechanisms and how they can be used to defend and promote human rights. It explores more traditional approaches designed to protect civil and political rights and new developments seeking to ensure that States fulfil their obligations vis a vis economic and social rights. It considers different models for translating international law into domestic law and policy and for mainstreaming human rights into various areas of judicial decision-making and policy.
