Kansainvälisen politiikan suuntaavat opinnot, syksy 2018 - kevät 2019 [Period I]

The student will learn to discuss and analyse conflicts in the Eastern European and post-Soviet countries over the interpretation of historical events, most notably over the history of the Soviet Union. Taking the region of Eastern Europe as a case study, this course explores the nexus between Foreign Policy Analysis/International Relations and politics of memory. In Memory Studies, scholars study how various political actors compete over the meaning of past events embodied in various memory sites such as monuments, commemorations, museums, and history textbooks. Scholars of International Studies, on the other hand, study the external relations of a state. Therefore, we will learn how the foreign policy of a state is enacted through the memorialization of particular historical events. The production of historical narratives often serves as a mechanism of national identity construction that defines the relation of a state to other national or supranational entities.

Human rights are often violated and at the same time international community is attempting to protect them as the international human rights regime is well developed and gives the normative and legal bases for protection. This course provides an understanding of the meaning of human rights and the problems of human rights protection from the point of view of both politics and law. The questions are how and why human rights violations occur and what can be done to fight against them?   The course is divided in four parts.

After the introduction part of the course, the second part discusses human rights form the point of view of international relations, the third part from the international law perspective and in the fourth part these insights are put together in order to have a comprehensive understanding on the means to provide human rights protection. Human rights and fighting against their violations are studied in two cases which involve two assignments. 

Part I   Introduction to the course (Tarja Seppä and another teacher to be informed lated)

Part II   Human Rights in international society (Tarja Seppä)

Students understand different interpretations of the human rights concepts and their meaning in international relations. Students are able to analyze different human rights practices and understand human rights both as a conceptual issue of international relations and as a manifestation of human rights policies and practices. Thus, they also understand why human rights are not always respected but also know how to protect them. 

Part III Human rights and international law (to be informed later)

Students understand the main legal aspects of international protection of human rights and the role of supervisory mechanisms. Students are able to analyze different human rights related concepts and understand human rights as part of international and national legal order. They understand how human rights law can enhance protection of rights of individuals.  

Part IV   Fighting Against Human Rights Violations

Students have two different case studies involving both political and legal aspects of human rights protection. During these assignments students are able to apply in practice their acquired knowledge from parts II and III and understand interrelated nature of political and legal human rights discourse. The assignments are chosen to provide comprehensive understanding of both regional and universal protection systems. The idea is also to bring together at the same time both intergovernmental and non-governmental systems and the possibility for individuals to make a difference in the fight against human rights violations.

Study objective: After completing the course students understand and can critically analyse how politics and law are related in the practices of human rights.

Period (4-Mar-2019 - 26-May-2019)
Erikoistumisopinnot [Period IV]

Human rights are often violated and at the same time international community is attempting to protect them as the international human rights regime is well developed and gives the normative and legal bases for protection. This course provides an understanding of the meaning of human rights and the problems of human rights protection from the point of view of both politics and law. The questions are how and why human rights violations occur and what can be done to fight against them?   The course is divided in four parts.

After the introduction part of the course, the second part discusses human rights form the point of view of international relations, the third part from the international law perspective and in the fourth part these insights are put together in order to have a comprehensive understanding on the means to provide human rights protection. Human rights and fighting against their violations are studied in two cases which involve two assignments. 

Part I   Introduction to the course (Tarja Seppä and another teacher to be informed lated)

Part II   Human Rights in international society (Tarja Seppä)

Students understand different interpretations of the human rights concepts and their meaning in international relations. Students are able to analyze different human rights practices and understand human rights both as a conceptual issue of international relations and as a manifestation of human rights policies and practices. Thus, they also understand why human rights are not always respected but also know how to protect them. 

Part III Human rights and international law (to be informed later)

Students understand the main legal aspects of international protection of human rights and the role of supervisory mechanisms. Students are able to analyze different human rights related concepts and understand human rights as part of international and national legal order. They understand how human rights law can enhance protection of rights of individuals.  

Part IV   Fighting Against Human Rights Violations

Students have two different case studies involving both political and legal aspects of human rights protection. During these assignments students are able to apply in practice their acquired knowledge from parts II and III and understand interrelated nature of political and legal human rights discourse. The assignments are chosen to provide comprehensive understanding of both regional and universal protection systems. The idea is also to bring together at the same time both intergovernmental and non-governmental systems and the possibility for individuals to make a difference in the fight against human rights violations.

Study objective: After completing the course students understand and can critically analyse how politics and law are related in the practices of human rights.
