This course is engaging and fascinating. Many of the issues and examples you will explore are contemporary human rights issues, such as female cutting (female genital mutilation), global domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, and the role international human rights law and international criminal law can play in addressing these atrocities.

This subject largely investigates international human rights law as it applies to women’s lives.

It is important to consider the language used in this course; the focus is on women and women’s lives.

The course is not called ‘gender and human rights law’; however, you are encouraged to reflect on this and consider issues of gender and sexual violence that may affect not only women.

Everyone is encouraged to take this subject. Even if you haven’t studied human rights before, there will be enough material to work on, which will allow you to gasp the topic.

Module A: Is the theory underlying human rights law male?


Module B: Feminist critiques of human rights


Module C: Institutional framework, institutions and documents relating to the human rights of women


Module D: Sovereign governments, non-state actors and individual responsibility for human rights violations: linking theory to practice
