New Coursera course: International Human Rights Law

I’ve registered to take another free Coursera online course, but decided against something technical or mathematical this time (mainly because I won’t have as much time to do weekly assignments). So this week I begin International Human Rights Law: Prospects and Challenges from Duke University.

This course introduces the international and domestic laws, institutions, and legal and political theories that protect basic liberties of all human beings.  The course provides an overview of the internal law of human rights and the principal mechanisms and strategies for holding governments accountable for violating those rights.
