Human rights are vulnerable. Protecting them globally will be important work for this and future generations, and thus is a central concern for global educators. This course will briefly trace the rise of human rights discourse in the 20th and 21st Centuries. Students will consider various typologies of rights (children’s, positive/negative, first, second and third generation); efforts towards consolidated action to promote human rights (ICCJ/Rome Protocol, UN Conventions, enforcement mechanisms, ECHR); and forces that contravene (authoritarian regimes, as well as US, China, Israel, and other states’ non-participation).
This course is designed as a capstone project to enable students to apply key learning and insights which they have
developed through course and fieldwork experience. In an online space students are matched in an interdisciplinary
cohort of up to five members and are encouraged to pursue interests developed during their Global Competency
Certification studies. Participants design an instructional and assessment framework project which will be critiqued
and collaboratively developed throughout the course by each cohort group. The project will have a direct application
to the participant’s workplace which will complement their ability to teach towards global competency in the
classroom. All projects and resources will be collected in an open source library to grow the collective body of work
dedicated to global competency and internationalization.
