Course summary

Based at the Transitional Justice Institute and with staff expertise across a range of areas, this degree is designed to give you a unique lens on the study of human rights. Using the local Northern Ireland political and legal context as a starting point, you will develop working knowledge of international norms and principles, while moving beyond the local to reflect critically on present international law norms and their application to other situations and contexts. You will be encouraged to develop and transfer knowledge, experience and expertise of the transformative possibilities of human rights law both in respect of societies emerging from violent conflict and in relation to the local and global management of other particular societal problems. This dual focus - from the local to the global and back, is a core part of the course’s aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills base to contribute internationally as well as locally.
