Global Human Rights

MAS 623

The setting of this course is a virtual grassroots, intensely focused, and highly respected human rights organization. MAAS students “join” the organization as trainees to become human rights monitors (investigators). The highly interactive training program requires new monitors to learn by exploring human rights issues around the world. The research requires virtual travel to current conflicts to investigate allegations of genocide in Darfur, sex slavery in Thailand, detainee abuse in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, and growing threats to civil liberties.
