International Politics Taster Course - IP9108
University of London Institute in Paris
Is there a difference between real and fake human rights? Who decides?
Philosophers and lawyers argue amongst themselves about how real human rights (freedom from torture?) can be distinguished from fake ones (a right to the internet?). This debate, however, is also a political one. The last four decades have seen increasing struggles at the United Nations and elsewhere over who gets to define human rights in practice. This Taster Course illustrates some dramatic real world consequences of these apparently theoretical questions. Click here to register. The International Politics taster course will then be followed by a 30 minute introduction to life at ULIP and a coffee, tea and cookies reception, where you will have the opportunity to meet the lecturer and chat with student ambassadors.
If you are interested in the BA in International Politics with French Studies options, or if you are generally interested in French Studies, then you may also wish to register to attend our French Studies taster course from 3.15pm – 5pm taking place just after the International Politics Studies taster course.
This taster course is taking place in central London (not Paris!)
