HIST 2791 International Humanitarianism (GB) (HA-AS) (HNU)

Tuesday and Thursday: 11:40-12:55 plus discussion

Professor John Weiss

This course studies international humanitarian and human rights activities from their origins to the present.  The ideological and social roots of humanitarian thought and action receive attention, as does the often-overlapping, sometimes conflictual relationship between humanitarianism and human rights advocacy.  Case studies will include the anti-slavery movement, the activities of faith-based groups, biographical studies of pioneering individuals, and the international response to the creation of refugees and to various genocides.  (non-US)
