Exclusive opportunity for Ambassadors: Attend classes in "Politics of Human Rights" at the Utrecht University Summer School at a discounted price

‘The politics of human rights’ is an international and interdisciplinary course; mixing together the nuances, ambiguities and need for accommodation of the field of 'politics' with the absolutes of legal claims to rights, the use of normative justification and the often underlying binary of right and wrong of the field of human rights.  We work to comprehend the space for human rights political system, the international climate on human rights, and fundamental human rights criticism and framing in order to enhance our dealings with human rights issues, and to build stronger counternarratives to human rights violations and abuse. Every session focuses on concrete and real-life human rights issues, applied academic knowledge as well as practical skills."

The course coordinator is René Rouwette. He is a professional lobbyist in The Hague and the founder of Dutch civil rights organization Kompass. Moreover, he is a research affiliate and PhD Candidate at Utrecht University and the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM).
