Ethics and Human Rights with Dr Cynthia Banham

This course addresses key ethical dilemmas in world politics. It begins by surveying the main ethical traditions in international relations, such as cosmopolitanism, communitarianism, feminism and postcolonialism. The course then engages a range of practical issues, including human rights, international law, humanitarian intervention and poverty. Lectures and seminar discussions alternate with alternative teaching methods, including participatory learning and simulation exercises.
