This course aims to introduce students to international human rights law. We will study the sources and the material content of human rights, the limits which can be opposed to them and the nature and the typology of the obligations they generate; the historical and philosophical underpinnings of the protection of human rights and the relationships with other branches of public international law and national law; international and regional monitoring and enforcement mechanisms (with an emphasis on the United Nations and the Council of Europe) and the dynamic evolution of international human rights law and its contestations. This course is taught in English.
